Rewards at the top

The primary purpose of the project is to gain knowledge of which preferences the citizens and politicians have with regards to the remuneration of politicians, and what drives these preferences. The second main purpose is to gain a more nuanced understanding of the positive and negative consequences of being a politician.

The project consists of two main parts. The first part examines the preference of remuneration from the perspective of both the citizens and the politicians, whereas the second part of the project examines the actual remunerations of the politicians.
