Elections and Democracy

The Norwegian National Election Studies (NNES) started at the Institute for Social Research in the 1950s, where it is still housed.

The Norwegian National Election Studies (NNES) started at the Institute for Social Research in 1957, and the institute has been a key contributor to research on elections and democracy for decades.

Today, the study of elections and democracy is a more important part of the institute’s research profile than ever before.

This field includes research on voting, turnout, electoral systems, the voting age, internet voting, referendums, political parties and democratically elected institutions.

The research employs a broad spectrum of research methods, such as public opinion surveys, register data and experimental methods.

The NNES cooperates extensively with other institutions and researchers, both nationally and internationally.
