Lokalvalgundersøkelsen 2019 og 2023
This project aims to provide both continuity and innovation to the Norwegian Local Election Studies, which have been carried out since 1995. Throughout this period, this project has been led from the Institute for Social Research, Oslo, in close collaboration with other research institutions. We build on this series of earlier studies. We still use a post-election survey as the main data source in the project.
The main publication from both the 2019 and 2023 studies will be a book in Norwegian that aims to provide high-quality readily accessible research results relevant for policy-makers, students and the general public including the media.
An equally important goal is to renew the field of local election studies in Norway. New methodological approaches are introduced, and research on new topics picks up developments in Norwegian local politics. The Local Government Reform is an important backdrop for the study. Since most municipal amalgamations take place between 2019 and 2023, it is a unique opportunity to examine how they affect political behaviour and political attitudes.
The main renewal of the 2019-2023 project, however, is increased internationalization. No international network of local election studies exists. International cooperation between local election studies in different countries must start from scratch, and we will contribute to building such a network. Our starting point will be the Danish Local Election Studies, where comparable surveys are carried out.
Moreover, the Danish project is currently in the process of establishing an international network of local election studies, in cooperation with Polish and Belgian researchers. Comparing Norway with Denmark will make it possible to exploit the comparative potential of the Norwegian Local Election Studies better than has usually been the case, placing the project at the forefront of comparative local election research.
