CNEP Workshop: Voting Amidst Economic Crisis, "Southern Europe in a Comparative Perspective"
Date: Friday, Oct. 17, 2014
Location: Mershon Center for International Security Studies, 1501 Neil Ave.
Host: Mershon Center for International Security Studies
The economic crisis in Southern Europe has led to the disintegration of the party system and the rise of a neo-fascist party in Greece, the emergence of a comedian and his anti-system movement as the third-largest party in the Italian parliament, and massive waves of protest in Spain. José Ramón Montero, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and Richard Gunther, Ohio State, will present analyses of voting behavior in Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain in comparative perspective. These presentations will analyze data from national election surveys following the most recent and previous Southern European elections, with the contrasting analysis of voting behavior in times of economic normalcy based upon 19 elections in 15 countries on five continents.
