Varieties of Egalitarianism: Mapping the Equality Concepts of Parties with Online Crowdcoding

Alexander Horn studies the changes in the importance of different concepts of equality among parties and how they affect equality-enhancing policies and inequality. He does that by using the innovative data-gathering tool of online crowdcoding. Based on the "wisdom of the crowd," he maps how parties conceive of equality and how these conceptions have changed.

To gather the data that the crowd categorizes, Horn uses political texts as sources. The aim of the talk is to present and discuss this research agenda based on first results for German parties.

About

The New Research on Europe Seminar serves as a weekly forum in which CES Visiting Scholars present their work. Scholars present their work in a form accessible to scholars working in fields other than their own. Papers may be circulated in advance, although this is not required.

The seminar encourages discussions across disciplinary as well as national boundaries. After each presentation, there is ample time for critique and discussion, followed by the CES Friday Lunch. This seminar is open to the public.
