Election Study Consortium

The national election study consortium is an open co-operative network of academic researchers interested in election research. The consortium plans the collection of election data during the Parliamentary elections, actively uses the collected material in research and teaching, and is responsible for Finland's membership in the relevant international co-operative organisations. The Board is elected for each electoral period in an open consortium meeting. Current (1.1.2018–31.12.2021) members of the board are: Kimmo Grönlund (chair, Åbo Akademi University), Åsa von Schoultz (University of Helsinki), Sami Borg (University of Tampere), Hanna Wass (University of Helsinki), Elina Kestilä-Kekkonen (University of Tampere) and Kim Strandberg (Åbo Akademi University). Marina Lindell (Åbo Akademi University) works as the secretary. The projects of the consortium have been financed by the Ministry of Justice and academic research funders. The consortium is currently planning the collection of data in connection with the national Parliamentary elections in 2019. Sami Borg, Elina Kestilä-Kekkonen and Hanna Wass will edit the main report in Finnish. Moreover, Åsa von Schoultz and Kim Strandberg will edit a volume in English on the results of the study.

At the moment the consortium is preparing the 2019 Parliamentary Election Study, coordinated by the Åbo Akademi University. For more information, please contact Kimmo Grönlund <kimmo.gronlund at>.
