Supervisors:Prof. Alex Mintz (The Interdisciplinary Center) & Prof. David Levi-Faur
The field of decision-making processes is an evolving field that has been flourishing in recent years and engages with a wide range of disciplines, within and outside academia. This study aims to present a new angle to the Israeli voter's voting patterns and examine the influence of heuristics on a voter's choices using an innovatively decision-monitoring technique. The leading research question of this thesis is: How certain factors influence the use of heuristics in Israeli voting decisions? This doctoral thesis is a collection of articles that will examine the place of heuristics in voting for the Israeli electorate, as part of this, the impact of personalization, socio-demographic factors, and political affiliation will be examined.
