Our Publications

The More In Common initiative took shape from work undertaken since 2015 to understand why advanced democracies failed to respond more effectively to the refugee crisis and its impact on domestic politics. Since then, our focus has widened to include broader questions of identity and belonging. More in Common's published studies of public attitudes in several European countries and the United States are already regarded as among the most insightful and actionable analyses of public opinion. Our researchers have also published papers on polarisation, social media and the psychology of political behaviour.
