Italian Tool “Navigatore Populista” published

The PRECEDE Consortium has just published its tool for Italy, the Navigatore Populista: 

The tool consists of two dimensions (the axes of the political landscape). The horizontal axis summarises the statements that distinguish political “left” from political “right”, and the vertical axis differentiates between “populist” and “non-populist”. We have labeled the poles of the axes using keywords that are common when talking about politics. To position the parties on these axes, we administered a survey among academic experts. The survey included the same questions that we ask you in the tool. We aggregate these experts’ responses about political parties into their positions on our landscape in the same way as the users’ responses. Additionally, the tool also includes the positions of the party leaders, allowing users to compare parties and leaders – a unique feature that VAAs normally do not offer.

An overview of the party and leader positions can be found here:
