November 04, 2013, Elizabeth Rankin

An ambitious international research effort to illuminate why democracies around the world succeed or fail has been awarded approximately $5.8 million over six years by the Swedish foundation Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. The Varieties of Democracy project, based in the U.S. at the University of Notre Dame’s Kellogg Institute for International Studies and in Europe at the University of Gothenburg’s Varieties of Democracy Institute, promises to make entirely new kinds of democracy research and policy assessment possible by quantifying democracy in all countries from 1900 to the present.
