Expert Surveys

Team Expert surveys aims at constructing a comparative database covering parties and party systems in Europe and in Latin America. We understand populism as a separate dimension of party competition among political actors that may or may not become activated. Capturing degrees of populism along this continuum will allow us to explore how populism relates to other policy dimensions, such as for example the general left-right positioning. The resulting data can be used to explore individual level questions by linking survey data to party positions, but also questions at the aggregate level.
