Politics Representational processes

This research programme focuses on various key aspects of institutions and processes that transform policy demands into policy outputs.

It involves theoretical and empirical work that develops knowledge of representation and specific mechanisms through which it is achieved.

Key projects include:

  • research on macro models of elections and policy representation
  • a cross-national research group on the fulfilment of election pledges
  • research examining the similarity between elite and activist opinion in political parties and movements
