Decreased Ideological Polarisation and Conflict in Europe. A Comparative Study of Ten Party Systems (MIPOK)

In cooperation with researchers from Linnaeus University, some of the researchers connected to the party research program are currently conducting the research project "Decreased Ideological Polarisation and Conflict in Western Europe. A Comparative Study of Ten Party Systems" (Minskad ideologisk polarisering och konflikt i Västeuropa?/MIPOK). 

In the project, we investigate if the dominant hypothesis on decreased political polarisation, i.e. that the political parties become more and more similar, is in fact true. We also study whether the parties themselves are the main initiators of their politics, or if they adapt to the voters' demands. 

Using a broad approach, and by combining theorites that are usually tested separately we can find new ways of explaining the state and development of representative democracy in Western Europe. 

The project is a cooperation between researchers at Linnaeus University and the University of Gothenburg. Click here to learn more about the project (NB. In Swedish).
