Abstract: Although Member states have increasingly relied on welfare policies to control intra-EU migration in the last decade, they often grant additional social rights to EU citizens who do not comply with residency requirements set by EU law, revealing a gap between declared restrictive aims and actual inclusive measures. Based on document analysis and semi-structured interviews in Belgium,...

Caparrós, A., and Finus, M. (2020)

Abstract: We argue that the incentive structure of all individual and coordinated measures across countries to contain the corona-pandemic is that of a weakest-link public good game. We discuss a selection of theoretical and experimental key results of weakest-link games and interpret them in the light of the corona-pandemic. First, we highlight that experimental evidence does not support the...

Addressing the 2012 healthcare reform and 2018 counter-reform adopted in Spain by a right-wing and left-wing government respectively and drawing on qualitative analysis of parties’ discourses...

Considering author sequence in all-author co-citation analysis

Abstract. Author co-citation analysis (ACA) is a commonly used method to map knowledge domains and depict scientific intellectual structures. Although all authors’ information has been considered in previous studies, ACA does not distinguish credits of different collaborators within a team. Authors’ sequence in a publication illustrates their contributions and specialty of research, which offers...

Paniagua A. (2020)

Abstract. The geographies of differences and resistances consist of experiences, processes, and visions of people in a distinctive space, expressed through everyday actions and behaviors to stay in a place. The distinctive spaces analyzed represent depopulated rural areas and urban ruralities, namely, (i) rural spaces with historical population losses, (ii) processes of socioeconomic decline, and...

In general, inequalities are more likely to be accepted by people of higher socioeconomic status, in richer societies and when inequalities are perceived as justifiable owing to differences in productivity. Almas et al. (2019) show that in a relatively...
