Democratic Accountability and Linkages Project (DALP)

This research project has been initiated and is carried out by a group of investigators in the Political Science Department at Duke University.

We are currently collecting data for the second wave of the project (DALP II). In this second wave, we are aiming to conduct surveys with experts from more than 95 electoral democracies.

The first wave of 2008-2009 expert surveys (DALP I)  involved data collection in more than 80 countries. You can download the previous survey from this web page and access the codebook for DALP I.
