The purpose of the replication workshop is to provide students with deeper insights into the research process, by replicating existing pieces of research. During the course the globalization thesis of the impact of the new cultural conflict in Western Europe will be analysed. The book West European Politics in the Age of Globalization (2008) provides a good analysis of the political repercussions of globalization for voters, for political parties, and for the structure of political competition in Austria, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
The participants of the replication workshop will then re-analyse the data from Kriesi’s book.
Participants in the workshop will provide written critiques of their reanalysis of the data.
