Elite Surveys

Team Parliamentary elite surveys sets out to measure political attitudes in parliamentary elites in different regional contexts. We conceptualize political attitudes as three categories: populist, pluralist and elitist. To measure these attitudes we draw on tools used to study these phenomena at the individual level (e.g. public opinion surve​ys) and adjust them to the specific context of parliamentary elites. In the first project phase (late 2014 and first half of 2015) we conduct pilot surveys in several ​Latin American countries (in collaboration with the University of Salamanca and the Parliamentary Elite Survey PELA), a candidate survey in Greece and a parliamentary elite survey in Croatia.
