Parties, Voters and National Identity

Our project, organized in the research framework focusing on the topic of national identities in Central Europe, aims to research how political parties use themes connected to national identity, and its goal is to find out how the declared political positions influence the election results of individual political parties in different regions.

It is our pleasure to draw your attention to the project „Parties, Voters and National Identity“, organized in the research framework focusing on the topic of national identities in Central Europe by the EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy.

The project aims to research how political parties use themes connected to national identity and to answer questions about their positions towards the European integration, minorities, national consciousness and foreign relations. The research method is based on content analysis of election manifestos and looking for hidden connections in them. The goal is to find out how the declared political positions influence the election results of individual political parties in different regions.

One of the project’s outputs is an interactive map, available at ceeidentity.eu.

With any questions related to the project, please do not hesitate to contact us at mvit@europeum.org.
