Aldo Paparo & Lorenzo De Sio (2017) PTV gap as a new measure of partisanship: a panel-data, multi-measure validation showing surprising partisanship stability, Contemporary Italian Politics, 9:1, 60-83, DOI: 10.1080/23248823.2017.1289733 Abstract Comparative studies of partisanship lack a comparable transatlantic measure. In the U.S. the traditional ANES measure is used, while in European multi-party systems a party-closeness measure is mostly used. A recent contribution proposed PTV (propensity-to-vote) gap as a potential solution to this issue, showing that the gap in PTV scores between the best- and the second best-placed party has desirable properties in the American case. In this article we test the...

Con questo articolo inauguriamo una nuova rubrica del sito web CISE, ovvero le "Interviste CISE". Si tratta di una rubrica volta a divulgare quella parte dell'attività di ricerca dei membri del CISE che, avendo meno attinenza con la quotidianità della politica italiana, è spesso poco visibile sul nostro sito. Si tratta invece di un'attività fondamentale, che produce pubblicazioni su riviste scientifiche italiane e internazionali, e che orienta l'attività e gli interessi di ricerca del CISE nel lungo termine. Oltretutto, divulgare quest'attività a un pubblico vasto e non specializzato è sempre più un obbligo fondamentale per il ricercatore sociale. Tuttavia, un...

Lorenzo De Sio, Mark N. Franklin, Till Weber, The risks and opportunities of Europe: How issue yield explains (non-)reactions to the financial crisis, Electoral Studies, Volume 44, December 2016, Pages 483-491, ISSN 0261-3794, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.electstud.2016.06.006. Abstract The financial crisis subjected the EU to its first truly serious stress test. A majority of citizens is now opposed to further integration. But party systems have barely adjusted, instead perpetuating traditional patterns of an evasive mainstream with Euroskeptic fringes. To explain this unexpected outcome we draw on issue yield (De Sio and Weber, 2014), a general model of political competition that unites public opinion, party...

Vincenzo Emanuele e Alessandro Chiaramonte Emanuele, V. and Chiaramonte, A. (2016), 'A growing impact of new parties: mith or reality? Party system innovation in Western Europe after 1945', Party Politics, Online First, DOI:10.1177/1354068816678887 (.pdf here) http://ppq.sagepub.com/content/early/2016/11/17/1354068816678887.full Abstract Despite the large body of literature on the emergence and success of new political parties in Western Europe, few, if any, attention has been paid to investigate new parties from a systemic perspective, therefore exploring their potential effects on party systems. This article focuses on party system innovation (PSInn), defined as the aggregate level of ‘newness’ recorded in a party system at a given election. After...

Emanuele, V. and Marino, B. (2016), 'Follow the candidates, not the parties? Personal vote in a regional de-institutionalised party system', Regional and Federal Studies Abstract This article analyses how personal vote shapes electoral competition and predicts electoral results in a regional de-institutionalized party system. After having analysed the connection between unpredictable political environment and personal vote, we build an original empirical model that explores preferential vote and patterns of re-candidacies and endorsements of the most voted candidates in the Calabrian regional elections. The analysis shows that leading candidates retain a more stable and predictable support over time with respect to parties...
