  • Interventionism of voters: district size, level of government, and the use
           of preference votes
    • Authors: Adam Gendźwiłł; Kamil Marcinkiewicz
      Pages: 1 - 21
      Abstract: This paper examines the use of preference votes under the open-list proportional representation system in the elections of assemblies at different levels of government. Our empirical analysis focuses on the elections held in Poland, where similar system is applied in elections of councils in three subnational tiers. This setting allows us to test the hypotheses concerning the impact of party magnitude and district size on the usage of preference voting. Earlier research demonstrated that the distribution of preference votes is heavily influenced by candidates’ ballot positions and their personal vote-earning attributes. While the ballot position serves as a cue for less-informed voters in all tiers, we demonstrate that the elections held in smaller constituencies, where voters are more proximate to their representatives, are more personal. This is reflected by the higher chances of changing the candidate order by using preference votes in constituencies characterized by the lower voters per seat ratio. We also find that preference voting matters more when party magnitude is larger. Our theoretical expectations are tested using logistic regression models, accounting for candidate- and list-level effects.

  • Keeping dissent alive under the Great Recession: no-radicalisation and
           protest in Spain after the eventful 15M/ indignados campaign
    • Authors: Martín Portos
      Pages: 45 - 74
      Abstract: Traditional theories of collective action would predict that, after a triggering event, the trajectory of a wave of protest is determined by the institutionalisation–radicalisation tandem. Based on the Spanish cycle of anti-austerity and against the political status quo protest in the shadow of the Great Recession, this article contends with this approach, as a clear trend towards radicalisation is never observed as the cycle unfolds. An alternative interpretative framework is developed to understand protest trajectories when collaborative inter-organisational strategies prevail. The eventful 15M campaign triggered in 2011 represents the most remarkable turning point in the Spanish socio-political mobilisation scene in recent years and had a transformative capacity over subsequent protest endeavours. Specifically, after the 15M campaign, the combination of downward scale shift and coalition building shaped the trajectory of mobilisation, and allowed for the peak of protest to persist until late 2013, when institutionalisation took over. Data from an original Protest Event Analysis dataset are used to illustrate the main arguments.

  • The lobbying success of citizen and economic groups in Denmark and the UK
    • Authors: Anne Skorkjær Binderkrantz; Helene Helboe Pedersen
      Pages: 75 - 103
      Abstract: The political influence of interest groups manifests in different ways. Interest groups may affect which political problems attract attention as well as the political decisions aimed at solving these problems. Crucially, different types of groups may be successful in respect to these different dimensions of influence. Economic groups have been described as engaging more in “insider” politics affecting public policy decisions, whereas citizen groups engage more in “outsider” politics affecting agenda setting. This study investigates the multidimensional character of interest group influence and links it to group type as well as lobbying strategies. The study is based on original survey data collected among Danish and British interest groups in 2011–2014. We find two related but distinct dimensions associated with agenda-setting and decision-making lobbying success. The analyses show that citizen and economic groups influence politics in different ways due to their choice of strategies and their different types of resources. Thus, group type has a direct as well as an indirect effect on lobbying success. This relationship is present in both pluralist UK and corporatist Denmark.

  • What explains the North–South divide in Italian tax compliance'
           An experimental analysis
    • Authors: John D’Attoma
      Pages: 104 - 123
      Abstract: I undertake a comparative study assessing the North–South divide in Italian tax compliance, employing the largest behavioral tax compliance experiment to date. Contrary to a large body of literature, I argue that willingness to pay taxes is constructed within a specific institutional environment and reflects the country’s quality of institutions. To test this hypothesis, I use controlled tax compliance experiments from four laboratories in Capua, Rome, Bologna, and Milan. By employing the experimental method, I am able to hold institutions constant allowing me to isolate cultural variation. Contrary to cultural explanations for tax compliance, when controlling the institutional environment, there is no difference in tax compliance. Furthermore, using social value orientation to compare prosociality, I also find no differences between the two regions. I therefore conclude that individuals’ relationship to their states shapes these behavioral differences in tax compliance.

      Abstract: Do new media level the playing field during election campaigns (‘equalization’) or do they mirror existing inequalities between parties (normalization)' Empirical studies come to contradictory findings. Part of the answer is in the timing: first social media level the playing field, afterwards bigger parties see the benefit and invest in it. Yet, this raises a new question: given that social media are cheap and easy to use, how can investing in them tip the balance' Based on a critical assessment of the literature and in-depth interviews, we advance a new theoretical framework to address both contradictions: the motivation-resource-based diffusion model. We link this model to the broader party and campaigning literature and formulate expectations, in terms of party size and ideology, about which parties use social media professionally. Afterwards, we conduct a crisp-set qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) of the Dutch parties (2010 and 2012 elections) to assess these expectations. We find that populism, postmaterialism, and party size matter but in different ways in the different phases of diffusion.

  • Same but different: A typology of Voting Advice Application users in
           first- and second-order elections
    • Abstract: Voting Advice Applications (VAAs) fulfill different needs for different citizens. In national elections, the majority of users can be characterized as politically sophisticated citizens who use VAAs for entertainment purposes and confirmation of their party preference, but a significant minority uses VAAs to learn about politics and make an informed vote choice. VAAs might, however, play a different role in second-order elections, since in these elections campaign dynamics and information supply are very different. In the current research, we applied latent class analysis on user data from a widely used Dutch VAA (Kieskompas) for a supranational and several subnational elections in the Netherlands, to test if an extant typology of VAA users for national elections could be replicated. We find that the typology can be replicated for most of these elections, but also that the relative size of the groups of users differs across elections; in all second-order elections except for the provincial elections, more doubters and seekers are found relative to national elections. This suggests that VAAs are likely to have stronger mobilizing potential in these second-order elections.

  • Dimensional issue competition on migration: a comparative analysis of
           public debates in Western Europe
    • Abstract: Considering the case of migration, the paper develops a dimensional framework for the analysis of the politicization of complex issues in public debates. It argues that since cross-sectoral issues are multidimensional in nature, public debates about them are best understood in terms of selective emphasis over their constitutive dimensions. Theoretically, the paper combines structural and strategic approaches to explain selective emphasis in public debates on migration. Empirically, it examines seven West European countries from 1995 to 2009 based on claims-making data collected by the Support and Opposition to Migration project team. Focusing on both actor-level and political opportunity determinants of the salience of issue dimensions, the analysis examines the varying importance attributed to four constitutive dimensions of the immigration issue, corresponding to socioeconomic, cultural and religious, security and civic aspects. The findings confirm that the composition of public debates on complex issues is not restricted to one single understanding, but changes depending on the actors involved in the debate and on contextual circumstances defining their involvement. As such, this research has profound implications for the scholarly understanding of issue competition and agenda-setting processes.

  • Whose primaries' Grassroots’ views on candidate selection
    • Abstract: Opening-up processes of candidate selection is often viewed as a means for political parties to regain legitimacy, and perhaps more crucially, members and voters. Despite a widespread belief that citizens want more democracy, including within parties, little research has questioned what sort of opening-up is desired—e.g., open or closed primaries—if at all, and by what type of citizens. Using data of the 2014 PartiRep voter survey in Belgium, we examine the diversity of preferences regarding candidate selection, and the extent to which preferences for open or closed primaries relate to voters’ participation in party organisations. Given the diversification of party affiliation types, we operationalise participation through two distinct variables: the formal party membership status of the respondents, and their party activism. We show that both membership and activism influence individual preferences, and that their effects are in fact conditional upon each other. Findings also raise crucial issues regarding the consequences of the multiplication of affiliation modes, the motivations and direction of intra-party reforms, as well as feed the debate on their expected versus genuine consequences.

  • Impeding constitutional amendments: why are entrenchment clauses codified
           in contemporary constitutions'
    • Abstract: Almost all contemporary constitutions are entrenched, in other words, harder to amend than ordinary laws. “Entrenchment clauses” further raise these hurdles. They make amendments to certain parts of a constitution or amendments under certain circumstances either more difficult than “normal” amendments or even impossible. Such provisions are common around the world and in all types of political systems. Nevertheless, they are highly controversial from a normative point of view since they may be seen either as adequate means for protecting human rights, democracy, and the rule of law or as illegitimate restrictions on democratic sovereignty. Against this background, this article examines the factors that influence the codification of entrenchment clauses in contemporary constitutions. The study analyzes 210 national constitutions adopted from 1975 until 2015. It focuses on factors describing historical legacies, the political and social context of constitution-making, and characteristics of the newly established constitutional order. As will be shown, the state of democracy has almost no significant influence on the decision for or against entrenchment clauses. Instead, historical path dependencies and contingent procedural decisions on the constitution-making process predetermine that constitutional choice to a large extent.

  • Differential representation' The gaps between mainstream and niche
           party representatives and their voters in The Netherlands
    • Abstract: This paper investigates the differences in the representational performance of mainstream and niche parties. It hypothesizes that mainstream parties represent their voters better on the socio-economic dimension and issues, while niche parties represent their voters better on the socio-cultural dimension and specific socio-cultural issues. To test these expectations, the congruence between Dutch local representatives of both mainstream and niche parties and their voters is measured using two surveys, one among Dutch voters and one conducted by the authors among a representative sample of municipal councillors. By analysing ‘many-to-many’ scores of congruence, which compare the distributions of the preferences of the representatives and their voters, it is concluded that mainstream parties do not consistently represent their voters better on specific issues or dimensions than niche parties, or vice versa. Instead, a mismatch between the preferences of representatives and their voters sometimes occurs particularly on issues that a party ‘owns’, because representatives tend to take more radical positions on these issues than their supporters.

  • The political representation of ethnic minorities in the Netherlands:
           ethnic minority candidates and the role of party characteristics
    • Abstract: This article examines the extent to which political parties affect the descriptive representation of both Western and non-Western ethnic minority groups on the candidate lists of political parties in the Netherlands. It systematically tests the role of policy positions of Dutch parties, their ethnic minority support, and candidate selection methods. As list position is related to electoral success, we study the nomination of ethnic minority candidates as well as their position on the candidate list. Using ethnic background data of all candidates for the Dutch parliamentary elections in 2012, we find that minorities of Turkish and Moroccan origin are not underrepresented, and that descriptive representation is below parity for Western minorities. We observe neither effect from parties’ ethnic support on ethnic representation, nor do we find any relation between party selection procedure and ethnic minority representation. The position of parties on immigration issues, however, is shown to be important. The results indicate that parties with more restrictive positions on integration and migration not only nominate fewer ethnic minority candidates, they also place non-Western ethnic minority candidates in lower list positions than parties who are less restrictive towards migration and integration.

  • United in diversity: examining the diverging attitudes towards the
           European Union on the ideological fringes
    • Abstract: Despite their partial move towards the political mainstream, radical right and radical left parties are still habitually considered as ardently sceptical towards European Union. Recent scholarship has, however, observed that the nature of radical right and radical left Euroscepticism is not as uniform as previously expected. In this article, I provide support for the argument that both the radical right and the radical left family are, in terms of standpoints towards the European Union, united in diversity; both families include parties with a variety of positions, ranging from hardline Euroscepticism to soft criticism and acceptance. More importantly, the article also examines the possible reasons underlying these differences. Using the policy, office or votes-framework, it provides robust support for the view that radical right and radical left parties’ attitudes towards the current European integration process are shaped by their overall (sociocultural and socioeconomic) policy profiles rather than by office- or vote-seeking incentives.

  • Rainmaker or rent-seeker' Associational landscapes and generalized
           trust of non-members
    • Abstract: Being at the center of social capital, voluntary associations are generally thought to play a crucial role for the functioning of civil society and democracy. Several studies, however, cast doubt on the contention that associations are the foundation of generalized trust. Our study wishes to provide new insights: first by aggregating aspects of associations to associational landscapes in terms of number of associations, their financial condition, connectedness to local politics, frequency of meetings, and activities taking place at the municipal level; and second by taking non-members into account. We argue associational landscapes matter particularly for non-members: Their generalized trust is either diminished since associations serve as what Fukuyama calls ‘rent-seeking’ tool for their members only or non-members benefit from what Putnam calls ‘rainmaking effect’ of vibrant associational landscapes. To test both arguments empirically, we present an original data set combining a survey among voluntary associations in 57 Swiss municipalities with a previously conducted population survey of their residents. Results of multilevel models give clear support to the rainmaker hypothesis. These findings can contribute to our understanding of the foundations of social capital.

  • Reconfiguring responsibilities between state and market: how the
           ‘concept of the state’ affects political consumerism
    • Abstract: Citizens hold different views on what they consider to be an appropriate role of the state in society. Their ‘concept of the state’ varies, and with it vary the views on which duties and responsibilities belong to the state, firms and citizens, and which role corresponds to each of them in tackling socio-political concerns. Based on a comparison of 20 European countries, this paper shows that such views affect individuals’ tendency to become political consumers and the overall extent of political consumerism in a country. Depending on whether cooperative approaches predominate in a society or, in turn, a reliance on free-market mechanisms prevails, the magnitude of political consumerism is larger or smaller in a country, respectively. Furthermore, the same pattern is observable at the individual level: citizens holding a cooperative ‘concept of the state’ are twice as likely political consumers than are citizens relying on free-market mechanisms. Thus, the study shows that different ‘concepts of the state’ explain cross-national differences in political consumerism, and these differences are immediately connected to singular patterns that underlie the individual inhabitants’ attitudes. Moreover, this highlights that attempts to encourage political consumerism should focus on means that are attuned to the prevailing ‘concept of the state’.

  • Adolescents’ development of approval of violent political action:
           evidence from six waves of longitudinal data
    • Authors: Viktor Dahl
      Abstract: The overarching aim of this study is to understand better the over time development adolescents approval of violent political action. Using up to six waves of longitudinal survey data for two cohorts of Swedish adolescents (N = 1987), this study examined: (1) the over time development of approval of violent political means. And, (2) in mediation models, the explanatory capacity of the brooder’s route and the delinquent’s route, two theoretical explanations put forth by the literature. The results show that approval of violent political means develops as a dynamic process. Whereas indicators of both the brooder’s and the delinquent’s route were both related to approval of violent political means, only delinquency mediated (partial mediation) the over time relation of the outcome. The findings were discussed in the light of what proximity of, on the one hand, ideology or religiosity implies, and on the other, what other kinds of violence than political implies for the development of adolescents’ approval of violent political means.

  • What makes up democracy' Meanings of democracy and their correlates
           among adolescents in 38 countries
    • Authors: Mario Quaranta
      Abstract: Several studies investigate the meanings of democracy among the adult population. In contrast, less is known about young citizens’ ideas of democracy, and which individual and contextual characteristics are associated with them. This article contributes to the literature by uncovering the meanings of democracy and their correlates among adolescents in 38 countries. Using the International Civic and Citizenship Education Study 2009, the article shows that meanings of democracy vary among adolescents. These meanings are the results of how adolescents find various aspects of democracy, as the rule of law, freedoms, rights, pluralism, or equality, constitutive of it. Then, the article assesses whether socialization agents and personal characteristics account for the different meanings of democracy to adolescents. Finally, the analysis addresses the role that larger contexts—democratization and human development—have in the formation of concepts of democracy among adolescents.
