The Training Network in Electoral Democracy (ELECDEM) extends and builds on the project PIREDEU, in which the Department of Methods in the Social Sciences is also involved. The Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) will bring together 11 expert teams from 9 European countries to run substantive and methodological trainings in elections research to early staged and experienced researchers from 9 European countries. The state of the art methodological training is provided in the field of advanced data collection and data analysis techniques. Researchers will join a team that brings together world leading scholars in the cross-national study of elections and industry partners to provide training and research opportunities. The goal of ELECDEM is to offer a comprehensive approach for the study of the impacts of globalisation, technological developments in communication and institutional change on electoral democracy.
