Hello and welcome,

My name is Patrick Clasen. I am a PhD candidate with Prof. Achim Goerres at the University of Duisburg-Essen. I am also political advisor in the European Parliament to MEP Jens Geier.

In my research, I am interested in the political psychology of fiscal solidarity in the European Union. I want to find out what makes people willing to contribute to transnational financial transfers in the EU. I want to understand how individuals form their policy preferences in general and specifically when it comes to fiscal and budgetary policy in the EU.

If you want to get in touch, you can send me an email:
