EES 1999 Study

 \  European Election Studies  \  EES 1999 Study  

Research Design

The interviewing of voters for the EES 1999 in all EU member countries and the study of the media in six EU countries were funded by the Dutch NWO. The project is studying the dynamics of issue evolution and the framing of political agendas at the time of the 1999 elections to the European Parliament. It is doing so by means of linked studies of party manifestos, media, voters in the countries of the European Union. As a subsidiary objective, it is studying the evolution of the separate electorates of member countries into a single European electorate.

The results of the study are summarized in the book “European Elections and Domestic Politics” edited by Wouter van der Brug and Cees van der Eijk.
