Public attitudes to welfare, climate change and energy in the EU and Russia (PAWCER)
Two publications have additionally been produced through the Public attitudes to welfare, climate change and energy in the EU and Russia (PAWCER) project. Funded by ERA.net, RUS Plus, the project aimed to conduct comparative research on public attitudes to welfare, climate change and energy. PAWCER supplied the funding that allowed Russia to participate in ESS Round 8. The project has been conducted by an international research consortium led by GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences (Germany).
- Russian versus European welfare attitudes
- Public Perceptions on Climate Change and Energy in Europe and Russia
