How Do Politicians Learn?
This research workshop questions the extent to which politicians are informed, how they obtain information, and – importantly – how they process it. In particular, it will explore three important and interrelated questions:
How well informed about voters’ policy preferences are politicians in reality?
What are the sources of their information?
What explains bias in their estimations of citizens’ policy preferences?
