Title: MAPPING PARTIES ACROSS EUROPE WITH EU PROFILER DATA
 
Author: Gabriela Borz and Richard Rose
 
Description: This paper presents a detailed analysis of the positions taken by 156 political parties winning seats in the European Parliament election of 2009. In doing so it makes use of the EU Profiler database, in which parties have been assigned policy positions by researchers at the Robert Schuman Centre of the European University Institute, in dialogue with the parties themselves. Positions on 23 issues differentiate parties on five underlying dimensions: European integration; socio-economic welfare; permissive behaviour; the environment; and immigration. Successive chapters report how parties competing within a country position themselves on these five dimensions and the extent to which national parties in the same European Parliament party group agree on issues.
