dr hab. Natalia Letki
Natalia Letki is the Principal Investigator of the „Valuing Refugee Policy” Project. She specializes in comparative research on citizens’ attitudes and behaviour, with emphasis on the significance of social and institutional context.
Dr hab. Natalia Letki holds a DPhil from Nuffield College, University of Oxford (2002), where she subsequently was a Post-doctoral Prize Research Fellow (2002-2005). Since coming to Poland in 2005, she has run numerous research projects, including ERC StG 240830 “Public Goods through Private Eyes. Exploring Citizens’ Attitudes to Public Goods and the State in Central Eastern Europe” (PI, 2009-2014), PROVIDE: PROVIding smart DElivery of public goods by EU agriculture and forestry, Horizon2020 Programme (Country Coordinator for Poland, 2015 – 2018), Foundation for Polish Science ‘Idee dla Polski’ grant (PI, 2009 – 2014).
She has trained as a sociologist, but her research falls at the intersection of sociology, political science and psychology, as she researches attitudes and behaviour towards public goods, including tax and pro-environmental behaviour and co-production, as well as social capital, social trust and corruption. She also has an extensive experience in research on ethnic minorities, and party policy and electoral strategy in post-Communist countries. She is particularly interested in the conditioning effect of social and spatial context.
Methodologically, she specializes in quantitative survey research, including survey experiments. She is widely experienced in working with cross-national survey data, including survey design and implementation.
