Voting behaviour and motives for voting in the Principality of Liechtenstein

Main Research Area:

The research work represents the first comprehensive analysis of voting behavior and motives for voting in Liechtenstein. In the political science dissertation, the form of government, the party system, the electoral law, and the media landscape were initially described as contextual factors. The basis for the empirical-analytical part was a post-election survey on the 1997 parliamentary elections. The study was based on the main theories of international electoral research - sociostructural, social psychological, and economic electoral theory - and examined the plausibility of the theories in the Liechtenstein context.


Project duration: 1997 to 2000
