Margit Tavits and Collaborators Receive a German National Science Foundation Grant

Professor Tavits and her collaborators (Professor Debus from University of Mannheim and Professor Somer-Topcu from UT-Austin) have been awarded a 467,010 euro (about $ 523,000) grant by the German National Science Foundation (DfG) to study whether and how political parties change their policy positions between elections and whether voters understand and care about those position changes. This is a follow-up to their previous DfG-funded project that resulted in a number of publications and the Comparative Campaign Dynamics Dataset.
