Areas of interest

Large-scale collective action. Interpersonal trust and confidence in political institutions and authorities. Altruism and egoism in the individual vaccination decision.

Current research

In my dissertation, I examine the conditions for achieving collective action in large-scale problems. The question is to what extent and under what conditions people are willing to contribute to solutions that are favourable to the collective. The empirical study focuses on the factors that influence people's willingness to get vaccinated. Vaccination not only protects the individual subject to injection, but also reduces the spread of infection in the community. The question is to which extent the possibility of reducing the spread of infection affects the individual vaccination decisions. My research focuses on interpersonal trust and confidence in political institutions and authorities. I'm also researching in the disciplines of environmental opinion and international health policy.
