About
The Democracy program conducts empirical research on democratic political processes and institutions (elections, voters, electoral system, political parties, parliament, government, and more). It focuses on the relationship between democratic ideals and norms and democratic practice through social scientific analysis informed by normative theories of democracy. The aim of the program is to ensure that citizens are at the center of politics rather than special individual, group, or partisan interests. The program’s aim is to promote political responsiveness and accountability, political party democratization, improvement of the integrity of electoral processes, and democratic culture, space and values.
