A common project by Hanno Hilbig, Daniel Ziblatt and Daniel Bischof
Description
 
While an enormous body of research investigates what drives radical right voting, we know comparatively little about the cultural roots of this phenomenon. We add to this research agenda by investigating how “cultural remoteness” of regions affects voting for the radical right in Germany. We argue that voters who live in districts which are culturally more distinct and exclusive are more likely to vote for radical right parties. Cultural remoteness strengthens feelings of local identity and the need to isolate oneself from global developments.
