Lukas Rädle will join our research team in January 2024 as a PhD Student in the “Politicians, Policies, and the Reproduction of Wealth” Project. He has earned his B. Ed. and M. Ed. in Political Science, English Studies, and Educational Science at the University of Tübingen. During his studies, he studied right-wing populist parties in Europe, ideologies of inequality, distributive justice, and the implementation of welfare policies. Additionally, he analyzed the media reappraisal of the terrorist attack in Halle and, with the help of guided interviews, the knowledge, and attitudes of teaching students towards antisemitism. Within the framework of our project, he is particularly interested in how politicians frame social policies, who benefits of social policies as well as the changes of policies up to their implementation.
