This research study investigates how Swiss and Californian politicians form
their perceptions of the preferences of the citizens they represent.
From exactly this word, represent, we derived the name of the project REP.

The Swiss part of the project located at Geneva University is financed by the Swiss National Science
and runs from 2017-2021 under the direction of Prof. Varone and Dr. Helfer.

The Californian part of the project is made possible by the prestigeous Fulbright Visiting Scholar
Program and is carried out by Dr. Helfer at Stanford University in the fall 2019.
