CERGE-EI project


The project “Electoral Behavior. An experimental approach from the laboratory and the field of Romanian local and general elections” is funded by the CERGE Foundation in Prague. It is an one year project and it is implemented between January 1st and December 31st  2012. The project is designed to be complementary to the project VRSB, contributing to the study of some of the effects that some voting rules like alternative voting, plurality or proportional voting have on the behaviour of the voters. The project concentrates on strategic voting and uses the Romanian context and the advantages of field and laboratory experiments to study these effects.
