Fabian Neuner is an assistant professor in the School of Politics and Global Studies at Arizona State University. He received his doctorate from the Department of Political Science at the University of Michigan in 2018. Neuner studies political psychology, political behavior, and public opinion, both in the U.S. and in comparative contexts.
His research examines key dynamics in political psychology including biased information processing, framing, and emotions. To date, Neuner's research has been published in the Journal of Politics and Political Psychology (see publications in Google Scholar).
Neuner's dissertation combines work conceptualizing and measuring framing effects with a substantive focus on public legitimacy of global governance. Here, he first examines how framing affects not merely attitudes, but respondents' understanding of politics. Second, Ihe studies attitudes toward global governance and how elite frames can affect the legitimacy of global regulatory bodies both in the specific context of global private environmental governance as well as global governance more broadly.
In addition to his dissertation, Neuner's research examines various aspects of political psychology and public opinion. Some of his current projects include work that unpacks (1) the mechanisms underlying framing and racial priming effects, (2) how mass media facilitates public responsiveness, and (3) the mechanisms underlying racial divides in perceptions of police-involved shootings.
Prior to his doctoral degree, Neuner received an M.Phil in Politics (European Politics and Society) from the University of Oxford and a B.Sc. in European Politics, Society and Economics from the University of Birmingham.
