Professor Druckman's research focuses on political preference formation and communication as well as coalition behavior in parliamentary government. His most recent work examines how citizens make political, economic, and social decisions in various different contexts (e.g., settings with deliberation, multiple competing messages, on-line information). He also has explored the relationship between citizens' preferences and public policy, and how political elites make decisions under varying institutional conditions. He has published articles in the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, The Journal of Politics, and other political science, economic, and psychology journals. He was a co-editor of the journal Political Psychology. From 1999-2005, Druckman served on the faculty at the University of Minnesota, where he was most recently the Benjamin Lippincott Associate Professor of Political Economy.
