Evelyne Hübscher Gives Interview to Spanish Journal

May 7, 2021

In a conversation with José Luis Marìn from the Spanish journal `Contexto y Acciòn’, Evelyne Hübscher talks about her research on the politics of austerity. The conversation mainly focuses on recent paper `Does Austerity Cause Polarization?' (together with Thomas Sattler, University of Geneva and Markus Wagner, University of Vienna). The paper shows that austerity politics has contributed to the polarization of political landscapes in advanced economies, led to the erosion of electoral support for mainstream left- and conservative parties and boosted the vote for non-mainstream parties at the fringes of the political spectrum.
