REPEAT: REpresentations, PErceptions and ATtitudes on the COVID-19
The general proposal aims at investigating the representations, attitudes and reactions of public opinion in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic through a variety of countries differently exposed to the coronavirus. Objectives identified by REPEAT are:
- Measuring the perceptions and (social) representations of different groups of people during the COVID-19 crisis, based on representative samples.
- Explaining the reasons why people are more likely to accept public recommendation under certain circumstances (to be investigated through online survey scenarios and experiments)
- Addressing causal mechanisms by which people perceive the saliency of the virus dissemination differently and react accordingly to public authorities’ discourses or those of public opinion leaders in their community.
- Study the impact of the lockdown measures on the labor market and the associated labor market policies
