EPAC – a dataset on ethnonationalism in party competition
On the one hand, datasets in the field of ethnic politics still tend to treat ethnonational groups as unitary actors and do not differentiate between the positions of the organisations representing these groups. On the other hand, datasets in the field of party politics differentiate between the positions of political parties, yet fail to convincingly conceptualise an ethnonational dimension of competition. To fill this gap in data collection, Edina Szöcsik and I conducted an expert survey during June and November 2011 to gather cross-sectional data on the ethnonational positions of 210 political parties in 22 multinational European democracies.

We have successfully completed the second round of the EPAC expert survey and are currently preparing the date for release!
