Principal Investigators: Keith Banting and Will Kymlicka
Co-Investigators: Allison Harell (UQAM), and Rebecca Wallace (StFX)

This project analyzes public attitudes towards the deservingness minority groups for welfare support, based on a specially designed survey conducted in Canada in August-September 2017. Papers based on the data were presented at a conference in Copenhagen in the fall of 2017, at the CPSA in May 2018, and at the APSA in September 2018. One paper is under review, and a chapter based on the findings is forthcoming in: Liberal Nationalism and Its Critics: Normative and Empirical Questions, edited by Gina Gustavsson and David Miller (Oxford: Oxford University Press).
