Studying sets of electoral levels: toward a conceptual framework[1]

Maxmilián Strmiska 


The paper focuses on the issues arising from the conceptualisation of the electoral space. It strives for a conceptualisation of electoral space that would allow adequately to interconnect individual types of elections with the respective spaces of electoral competition and electoral behaviour, but also to render the territorial and institutional differentiation of these spaces.

Key words: Multi-level settings; electoral space; conceptualization.
