Research Design

European Election Study 2009 was a part of the PIREDEU project that was funded by the European Union’s FP 7 program. The study aimed at designing an infrastructure for research into citizenship, political participation, and electoral democracy in the European Union (EU). This infrastructure provides  an empirical data base on voters, party manifestos, political elites, and news media in all EU member countries.  The infrastructure also comprises the technical and administrative procedures needed to create, develop and maintain such a database.

The results of the study are summarized in “An Audit of Democracy in the European Union” ebook edited by Susan Banducci, Mark Franklin, Heiko Giebler, Sara Hobolt, Michael Marsh, Wouter van der Brug and Cees van der Eijk.
