The Research and Expertise Centre for Survey Methodology (RECSM) of the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) will be hosting the working meeting of the European Social Survey (ESS ERIC) Core Scientific Team (CST) on October, 30th and 31st. The CST is supporting in the design and implementation of the ESS ERIC Work Programme. As part of the CST RECSM researchers are involved in questionnaire development, translation and data quality assessment.  

On the evening of October 30, there will also be a public event in which Javier de Esteban (Research Director, Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas (CIS)) and Mónica Méndez (CIS Technical Advisor, Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas (CIS)) will share insights on the implementation of the ESS in Spain. Since Round 6 (2012) the ESS is implemented by the Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas.

Mónica Ferrín (Ramón y Cajal Researcher, University of A Coruña) will present findings from the ESS Round 6 Rotating Module “Europeans' Understandings and Evaluations of Democracy”. The event will gather researchers, students, among other stakeholders to discuss the contributions of the ESS in Spain over the last 18 years.

7pm Europeans' democratic attitudes and the European party system : Learning from ESS R6

Mónica Ferrín (Ramón y Cajal Researcher,  University of A Coruña)

Abstract: In one way or another, most of the so-called challenger parties talk in the name of democracy. Either claiming a democratic renewal against old elites or reclaiming the sovereignty of the people and for the people, democracy comes out easily in their pitches. These discourses apparently mirror the increased citizens’ discontent with the functioning of their democracies, especially after the economic crisis of 2008. As such, these parties increase the supply of alternatives for voters concerned about the functioning of their democratic systems. To date, however, citizens’ views and evaluations of democracy have hardly been included as the major independent variable in the study of the European party systems. Is there a relationship between people’s dis/satisfaction with democracy and the composition of the European parliaments? Are there some parties more likely to benefit from citizen’s dissatisfaction than others? The ESS Round 6 gives us food for thought on these questions.

7.30pm Finger food & drinks
