Our lines of research
Consult our Databases
Q-Dem has created databases that make it possible to explain and compare the evolution of the political agenda, the participation of interest groups in the political process, and the activity carried out
by members of government and parliament.
Infographics about our Databases
We have created infographics from our databases in order to highlight the explanatory power
of this data. We also offer the option to adjust each parameter
of the graphics according to each user’s interests.
Our Research Team
Q-Dem is made up of professors and researchers in Political Science from the University of Barcelona and the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals, IBEI, who collaborate regularly with other leading international institutions in Europe and the United States through different research projects.
