TOPICS

The REDEM consortium has established five Thematic Working Parties (TWP) which will conduct research and collect and organise thematically focused materials in 5 major thrust areas. Over the duration of the project each TWP will generate area-specific data- and knowledge-bases, mapping out resources such as case collections, electoral data and surveys, comparative data, and a variety of other relevant information sources. TWP activities will result in thematic bibliographies and literature reviews which will be made publicly available. The TWP framework will structure the overall dissemination activities of the REDEM consortium.
