CSES Module 2: 2001-2006

About the Module

CSES Module 2 focused on representation and accountability via three key theoretical questions. First, it examined the contrasting views of the logic of elections - to what extent are elections a mechanism to hold government accountable, as opposed to a means to ensure that citizens' views are properly represented in the democratic process? Second, the module added a new set of items on citizen engagement and cognition across democratic polities. Third, the module expanded the analyses of the first module to examine how voters' choices are affected by the institutional context within which those choices are made.
