Projects

The experience of corruption: a comparative global analysis
Rose, Richard (Principal Investigator)
Corruption is a major problem of governance in countries with most of the world's population. The project will go beyond existing measures of the perception of corruption by analysing the actual experience of corruption as reported in more than 500 sample surveys from more than 130 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America. Each survey asks a battery of key questions about contacts with health, education, police and other municipal services, and whether any bribes were paid. Survey data makes it possible to test whether corruption is more of a problem for people who have high or low incomes, more or less education, live in urban or rural areas, or differ in age or gender. The project partner is Transparency International's Secretariat in Berlin. It will cooperate in the dissemination of the results. The project draws on Richard Rose's decades of experience in designing and analysing surveys across continents and as a pro bono adviser to Transparency International. William Mishler will be responsible for sophisticated multi-level statistical analysis.

Representing Europeans: The 2009 European Parliament Election In Theory And Practice
Rose, Richard (Principal Investigator)
"The growth in the EU's powers means that it can no longer carry out integration by stealth. Measures adopted to save the eurozone impose visible political costs without immediately visible benefits, which makes it more difficult to secure popular commitment to an ever closer union.

EU decision making occurs by consensus among the governing parties of member states, but on average they represent half their electorate, and with a multi-national Parliament whose MEPs disagree in seeking national votes but agree in endorsing EU integration. The many checks built into EU decision making institutionalise a high degree of horizontal accountability; an equally strong system of vertical accountability to Europe's citizens is lacking. However, voters can invoke their power as national citizens to pass judgment on the government that represents them in Brussels. National governments thus face competing pressures to agree with governments of other countries in the European Council and to deliver satisfaction to their own electorate. In most national referendums on EU issues, a majority endorse EU agreements.

If EU powers are to expand, the project recommends that more use should be made of national referendums to test popular commitment to EU treaties. This will also require differentiated integration so that member states where majorities want more integration may proceed while those that do not can stay where they are."
