Key findings from the Scottish Election Study have been and will be presented in a number of different arenas. In the presentations below, we share with you all possible information blocks, answering all theoretical questions, but buy letter of recommendation from if you are inspired after reading on active educational activity.

Scottish Election Study 2011

Scottish Election Study 2011 seminar, University of Strathclyde, 20 June 2011
This conference, organised by the Centre for Elections and Representation Studies, School of Government and Public Policy, University of Strathclyde, included three presentations using SES 2011 data. The first, presented by Prof James Mitchell, highlighted the dealignment of Scottish voters. The second, by Dr Robert Johns, examined vote choice in the 2011 election, finding that competence evaluations tended to drive Scottish voters' choices. Dr Christopher Carman's presentation examined turnout, voters' perceptions of the altered ballot papers, vote choice in the Alternative Vote Referendum and, finally, multilevel party identification in Scotland. Slides from the three presentations are available below:

  • How do we 'do' elections
