Recognized as a research committee in 2011.
IPSA-ECP focuses on the analysis of elections, citizen activism, and political parties, within and across nation-states, using multiple methods. Elections include the role of electoral systems and electoral management, electoral reform, political representation, gender quotas, and the regulation of campaign and party funding. Parties are the key actors on the ‘supply-side’ of electoral competition, structuring voting choices, selecting candidates, offering policy platforms, campaigning, and organizing the allocation of legislative and executive offices. Lastly citizen activism includes research on political participation and voting behavior, the ‘demand-side’ of electoral competition determining party performance.
