Doctoral Student Zhen Im is a PhD researcher attached to the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Helsinki. His research interests lie in the field of social policy and comparative politics. He is especially interested in how automation and labour market changes impact citizens’ support for different types of welfare policies, and their voting behaviour. He is currently involved in two projects. The first examines the impact of automation on support for active labour market policies in West European economies. The second studies the policy profiles of voters for different political parties in Sweden and Denmark. He also recently co-authored an article on the impact of automation on support for radical right parties in Western Europe with researchers from SciencesPo Paris. In addition, he is involved in the Horizon 2020 funded “Beyond 4.0”, and the Strategic Research Council of the Academy of Finland funded “BIBU” research consortia.
