Welsh Election Study

A project to explore and understand the political dynamics surrounding the National Assembly for Wales election in 2016.

The funding for this project was awarded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

The study includes:

  • A study of voters, including a three-wave survey of a representative sample of the Welsh electorate.
  • A study of local campaigning – which may, potentially, take some rather different forms under the Additional Member System (AMS) system we use for National Assembly elections than it does under First Past the Post.
  • A study of social media activity surrounding the election.
  • A consultation event on the study.
