Explaining political affinities in Kosovo: Socio-demographics, issue articulation and ideology

Session

Political Science

Description

This article expands on a previous study presented two years ago at the International Conference in Political Science and International Relations (IC-PSIR) that examined main cleavages in Kosovo from a historical perspective and was based mainly on administrative data. This article now answers questions such as: What are the socio-demographic bases of the main blocs of political parties, how do blocs of parties interact with and articulate issues relevant or relating to the supporting socio-demographic groups, how do ideological orientations match with party support and how do parties shape ideological formation. Using novel survey data, the study sheds light on the dynamic political change and, from this perspective, on the content of democratisation.

Keywords:

Cleavages, socio-demographics, ideology, issues, articulation, change.
