Introducing: Female researchers at the University of Stuttgart

Dr. rer. pol. Eva-Maria Trüdinger’s work focuses on the conditional support for civil liberties and preferences for domestic security policies in Germany as part of a research project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

For this project, Dr. Trüdinger, will investigate the importance of particular civil liberties for German citizens, as well as exploring under which conditions, and with which motives, the population would accept various sate interventions in the context of domestic security policies. Developments such as digitalization or changes to international security policies underline the importance of this issue. The analyses are supported by data collected via a nationwide telephone survey and an online survey conducted in 2016.
