On this website you can find more information about our PRECEDE project (2020-2023), a cross-national Consortium research on Populism’s Roots: Economic and Cultural Explanations in Democracies of Europe, funded by the Volkswagen Foundation.

In our project, we are studying multiple facets and dimensions of populism’s facets in ten European countries. Methodologically, we design Voting Advice Applications (VAAs) for the elections in our ten countries (click here for an overview) that both communicate our research to a broader audience and help us to understand the party-voter dynamics. In addition to VAA data, we also rely on survey data collected in our ten case countries.
