The Varieties of Democracy Project Data: Global Standards, Local Knowledge

Location: Washington, DC

Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) is an international collaboration that is producing new fine-grained indicators of hundreds of aspects of democracy for all countries and colonies from 1900 to the present. In this event, two of the principal investigators from V-Dem's home institutions–Michael Coppedge (Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame) and Staffan Lindberg(Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden)–will demonstrate how this dataset will make new kinds of democracy research and policy assessment possible for the first time.
