Charlotte Cavaillé

Cavaillé’s research focuses on the social and political processes behind the emergence, expansion, and transformation of what T.H. Marshall called “social rights.” Her dissertation examines changes in mass attitudes toward redistributive social policies in advanced capitalist economies with a focus on the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. More specifically, she studies the impact of changing individual and contextual economic conditions, policy design, and elite-level framing on individual-level support for social policies, income redistribution, and government intervention.
