RJ supports the CERGU conference on Expert Evaluation of Party Positioning and Competition in Europe
Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) has decided to financially support the conference on Expert Evaluation of Party Positioning and Competition in Europe, which will be held on June 13-14, 2013 at the Centre for European Research (CERGU) University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
This conference is co-organized by Jonathan Polk and Jan Rovny, both research fellows at CERGU. It will produce cooperation and sharing of experiences amongst international and Swedish researchers working on European political parties. The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars working with surveys and survey methods assessing preferences of political actors in Europe. In particular, the conference focuses on the past use and future development of the Chapel Hill Expert Survey on Political Parties (CHES), the most comprehensive survey on party positioning available.
