Electoral systems and the levels of governance

The working group “Electoral Systems and the Levels of Governance” analyzes the influence of electoral systems on the representation of interests by political parties (with regard to other functions of political parties) in the comparative perspective at various levels of governance (local, regional, national, and European). On this occasion, relevant research tools will be developed and used in field research of electoral behaviour within elections in the Czech Republic (local governments, regional councils, Chamber of Deputies, the Senate and election to the European Parliament from the macro-systemic and the micro-systemic perspective). Another aim of this working group is to build a systematic database of electoral results providing opportunity for further study of this field of problems.
