Theodoridis in Environmental Politics

August 28, 2017

Professor Alexander Theodoridis' paper "Addressing Concerns About Climate Policies" has just been published in Environmental Politics. Congratulations Prof. Theodoridis and co-author!

The paper uses a survey experiment to evaluate public support for "responsive accommodation," those situations in which amendments are incorporated into policy proposals to address specific concerns. The experiments analyse reactions to two different amendments to a carbon tax proposal, revenue neutrality assurances and a carbon tariff. Support for a carbon tax increases when coupled with a carbon tariff, but decreases when described as revenue-neutral. It appears that policymakers using a responsive accommodation strategy should carefully weigh its possible risks and rewards in their particular context.
