Stick or Shift? Attitudes towards inequality, the Welfare State and social security benefits during COVID-19
Various Speakers

What can we learn about (public) attitudes towards aspects of the welfare state in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic? It is a now well-rehearsed observation that the pandemic has created unprecedented social conditions and challenges. A reasonable assumption is that this would feed through into drastic shifts in attitudes, but this is not what the evidence to date shows. This event paints a more detailed picture of what has happened to attitudes and why. Covering attitudes towards the welfare state, inequality and social security benefits we ask what has happened to attitudes, why this might be, and what this means for policy formation and change.
