Abstract / Description

The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic poses a global health and economic threat. Tackling the pandemic requires global cooperation and the provision of development assistance to countries in need. However, individual health-related and economic worries may decrease support for development assistance among publics in donor countries. Against this background, we plan to investigate 1) the effect of pandemic-induced worries on public support for providing assistance to developing countries and 2) the moderating role of feelings of moral obligations towards developing countries and trust in government. Drawing on the aid attitudes literature and using survey data from the 8th wave (April 21./22., 2020) of the COSMO survey (Betsch et al., 2020) as well as linear regression models, a set of hypotheses will be tested.
