I have collected data on current and past party positions in several projects.
Ethnic Party Competition dataset (EPAC): Together with Christina I. Zuber, I conducted an expert survey on party positions in 22 multinational European democracies in 2011 and 2017. The data is available here.
Habsburg Manifesto Dataset (HMD): Together with Phil J. Howe and Christina I. Zuber, I collected election manifestos and party programmes of Czech and German political parties for the elections in 1897, 1901, 1907 and 1911 in Imperial Austria. We developed a coding scheme following current coding schemes of party manifestos to measure party positions on 76 issue and 118 group categories. The Habsburg Manifesto Dataset will be made available upon the publication of a research article.
Dataset on regionalist actors’ territorial demands and frames: Within work package 7 of the Horizon 2020 project “IMAJINE”, we have developed a coding scheme to capture regionalist parties’ and CSOs’ territorial demands and frames in twelve regionalist movements in eight European states based on their programmatic documents between the time period 1990-2018. Currently, we are coding the documents. The dataset will be made available with the publication of an article presenting the dataset.
