The Chair

The Canada Research Chair in Electoral Democracy (Tier 2) was awarded to Prof. Ruth Dassonneville in 2016.

The ambition of the Chair’s research program is to fill an important gap in the literature by examining the consequences of the erosion of partisanship on 1) the vote choices of citizens, 2) the behaviour of political parties and 3) the congruence between citizens and parties. These three elements constitute the three research lines of this program and are investigated using representative voter survey-data, party-level data and survey experiments.
