Research Structure

ISPO's research work is divided into four expert working groups. Even though methodologically and substantially connected, they deal with individual problem spheres of political parties and interest interpretation in both the Czech Republic and contemporary Europe.

  1. The analysis of Czech politics after the accession to EU
  2. Political parties and party systems (mutli-level perspective)
  3. European dimension of political parties and of political pluralism
  4. Electoral systems and the levels of governance
