Research projects of the Faculty of Economics

The Faculty of Economics carries out competitive, interdisciplinary research projects aimed at both the development of knowledge and its application, carried out within a network that includes academic and business partners at international, national and local levels.

 

Highlights

Institute of Economics (IdEP)

Prof. Patricia Funk - Referendum Forecasts, Turnout and Ballot Results

This project investigates whether ballot forecasts on initiatives and referendums affect participation decisions of potential voters. Knowing whether and how pre-polls affect voters’ participation decisions is crucial: if pre-poll results affect certain individuals’ participation decisions, then pre-polls themselves may have an impact on the voting result. Put differently, not displaying any pre-poll results may lead to different electoral outcomes. More information.
