A comparison between elections and electoral systems

Empirical studies on elections, parties and voting conduct.

This project comprises several partial projects on elections, voting conduct and parties mainly in Germany, the US and Canada. Part of a finalised project was an international convention in May 2002 followed by a book project “Conservative Parties and Right-Wing Politics in North America: Reaping the Benefits of an Ideological Victory?”, edited by Roland Sturm and Dagmar Eberle, Opladen 2003, and contributions on “Elections in the Americas. A Date Handbook”, edited by Dieter Nohlen, Oxford UP. Within the framework of a dissertation we have further examined the strategic application of digital information and communication technologies by parties in North America. Also, we will study “Germany” in Elections in Europe.
