Centre d'étude de la vie politique [Center for the Study of Politics] (CEVIPOL)
Faculté des Sciences sociales et politiques / faculty of Social and Political Sciences - Institut de Sociologie
Institut d'études européennes / institute of European Studies - Section politique (unité ULB590)

Le CEVIPOL vise avant tout à produire de la recherche fondamentale, à travers la réalisation de thèses de doctorat, la rédaction d'articles et d'ouvrages scientifiques et l'organisation de colloques et séminaires. En diffusant le produit de leurs recherches empiriques sous forme de publications, les chercheurs du CEVIPOL prennent activement part au débats scientifiques dans un triple espace belge, francophone, et international. Le CEVIPOL contribue également à la constitution de bases de données sur la vie politique. En particulier, les résultats électoraux à l'échelle européenne, les effectifs des acteurs politiques (partis politiques, syndicats, groupes de pression, monde associatif), les catégorisations socio-culturelles des citoyens et élites. Parallèlement, le Cevipol mène également des tâches de vulgarisation des résultats de ses recherches. Dans le cadre de ses missions de service à la société, il prend part à des activités d'éducation permanente (conférences, formations) et il établit des synthèses de ses travaux à destination des milieux politiques, sociaux et médiatiques. Dans le cadre de la mission d'enseignement de l'Université, le CEVIPOL est un protagoniste actif dans l'aide aux étudiants (encadrement de travaux, de mémoires, de voyages d'études). [CEVIPOL's main aim is to produce fundamental research by supervising doctoral theses, writing scientific papers and books and organising seminars and conferences. While diffusing the product of their empirical research in publications, research fellows at the CEVIPOL take part activiely in the scientific debate in Belgium, in the francophone space and at the international level. Furthermore, the CEVIPOL contributes to the elaboration of databases on politics. In particular, let us mention European election results, political actors (political parties, trade unions, pressure groups , associations), socio-cultural categorisation of citizens and elites. At the same time, the CEVIPOL is involved in popularising its research results. In the framework of the university missions of services to society, it takes an active part in life-ling learning, education (conferences, training) and summarises its work destined towards political circles, civil society and the media. With regard to the University's teaching mission, the CEVIPOL is notably an active protagonist in the support to students (writing of papers, theses, study trips).]

ESCE : Electoral System Changes in Europe since 1945 [ESCE : Electoral System Changes in Europe since 1945]
Building upon the literature that has developed since the mid-1990s on the politics of electoral system changes the ESCE research projects aims at moving one step further our understanding of the issue. To that extent ESCE aims at becoming the most ambitious research project so far in both time and scope in the field of electoral reform studies. All electoral system changes in Europe since 1945 are going to be studied, and the definition of what an electoral system change is would be also broaden by including electoral formula, district magnitude and thresholds but also changes to the ballot structure. On the basis of this very rich material the analysis would concentrate on four issues. (1) We are going to examine whether there is a change in the nature of the electoral reform process, in the way changes to the electoral law occur. Traditionally the process was fully under the control of the political elite but recent developments have show that citizens are getting more involved (Italy, NZ, British Columbia). We are going to verify if there is a clear trend or if the inclusion of citizens remains anecdotic. (2) What is considered in most articles and books to be the main driver of reform is the strategic interest of parties. Our perspective is that this model is too straightforward. The nature and dynamic of partisan interest is much more complex that the literature tells. In particular we aim at studying how the subjectivity of actors may be crucial to understand how they define whether a reform would be in their interest or not. (3) The role of values in electoral system changes would be discussed. The circumstances in which values are likely to operate and the effects they may have will be explored. And (4) we are going to look at the outcome of electoral system changes since 1945 in order to see whether we can identify trends leading European democracies in the same direction concerning the rules of the game they adopt for organizing elections. Both the proportionality and the personalization theses are going to be verified.

MAPP: La participation politique conventionnelle en Belgique : les adhérents des partis politiques en Belgique [MAPP: The conventional political participation in Belgium : Membership of the Belgian Political Parties]
L'objectif du projet est de contribuer à combler le déficit de la connaissance scientifique dans l'étude des partis et de la militance en Belgique. Nous le ferons en référence au canevas que nous avons évoqué mais aussi eu égard aux études européennes relatives au rôle et au profil des adhérents de partis politiques et aux stratégies éventuelles des partis face à l'adhésion compte tenu d'un certain nombre d'évolutions ; par exemple le financement public des partis politiques. Dans le cadre du bousculement politique et citoyen que la société belge a connu entre 1995 et 1999, nous testerons aussi les théories de la convergence des militances associative et politique ou, inversement, de leur différence et de leur caractère mutuellement exclusif.Le projet est prévu sur trois années civiles. [The objective of this project os to tackle the lack of scientific knowledge in the study of political parties and activism in Belgium. The project will take into account a number of developments, such as new funding rules for political parties as well as a European comparative perspective. Against the background of important transformations of the Belgian political landscapes in the last years, the hypothesis of a convergence between acitivism in political parties and in associations will be tested. The programme should run for three civil years. ]

PARENEL: Représentation Parlementaire aux niveaux national et européen. Une comparaison France - Belgique - Pays d'Europe centrale et orientale [PARENEL: National Parliamentary Representation in Europe. Comparing Belgium-France-Eastern and Central Europe]
Le projet PANEREL vise à appréhender l'identité, les comportements et la socialisation des parlementaires. Pour ce faire, il importe d'identifier le faisceau de contraintes dans lequel ils évoluent, ainsi que l'impact des représentations qu'ils ont à l'égard de leur rôle, de leur mandat, de leur rapport au(x) territoire(s), de leur position dans l'institution et de la place de cette institution dans le système politique. Dans une approche cognitiviste, on étudiera la manière dont ils ajustent leur comportement à un corpus de règles formelles et informelles, qui est très sédimenté dans le cas des chambres nationales, et susceptible d'évolutions - et donc de conflits - dans le cas du Parlement européen. Ce projet met de plus en lumière les interactions entre les parlementaires et leur institution. Ce faisant, on pourra évoquer avec quelque rigueur la question de la transformation des rôles parlementaires et celle de l'adaptation des institutions parlementaires aux évolutions de leur environnement, et notamment à la redéfinition des espaces d'action publique. Il s'agit aussi de voir dans quelle mesure leurs valeurs, représentations, comportements et priorités sont affectés par leur socialisation dans l'institution parlementaire. Ce projet permet également d'analyser les modalités et évolution de la territorialisation de la représentation. Il est indispensable de se pencher sur les conditions de l'accès à la fonction de parlementaire et de sa conservation, et sur le sens que revêt aujourd'hui la notion de représentation parlementaire. S'agissant du Parlement européen, l'ambition est d'examiner la manière dont ses membres s'inscrivent progressivement dans les paysages politiques nationaux et régionaux, et parviennent ou non à trouver des ancrages territoriaux et à peser sur l'action publique à l'échelle locale.

PARTIREP: Participation et représentation dans les démocraties contemporaines. Une analyse comparée des relations entre citoyens et état. [PARTIREP: Participation and representation in contemporary democracies. A comparative analysis of relationships between citizens adn the State.]
Le projet PARTIREP vise à établir comment et dans quelle mesure les processus de participation et de représentation sont affectés par les changements sociaux majeurs qui caractérisent les sociétés d'Europe occidentales depuis quelques décennies. Le projet PARTIREP se focalisera sur les conséquences des changements sociologiques, des changements de valeurs, des transformations institutionnelles, des transformations partisanes, des changements dans les systèmes de partis et des transformations dans la culture administrative qui sont en train de transformer l'implication citoyenne dans la décision politique dans les sociétés contemporaines. En retour, on s'interrogera aussi sur les effets des transformations des modèles de participation et de représentation sur la légitimité du gouvernement démocratique. Nous appréhenderons ces thématiques sous l'angle des citoyens (participation, attitudes), des partis politiques (organisation, stratégie), sous l'angle d'autres organisations intermédiaires (les médias, les mouvements sociaux) et sous celui des décideurs politiques (la perception de leurs rôles, leurs liens avec la société). Cette recherche à facettes multiples s'articulera autour de plusieurs projets précis sur une des problématiques énoncées. En termes de méthodes, il y aura deux instruments communs de recherche, qui auront pour ambition de répondre à des questions soulevées dans chacun des work packages et qui irrigueront profondément l'ensemble du projet: le premier est une étude pré et post-électorale à l'occasion du scrutin régional en Belgique de 2009, et le second est une enquête internationale auprès des parlementaires régionaux et nationaux en Europe. [Participation and representation are concepts that have been at the centre of political debates and of political theory for a few decades. This debate refers to (still ongoing) deep changes in the way citizens are linked to the process of political decision-making and in the procedures and principles that organize the democratic dialogue between state and society. This pressure on democracy has multiple dimensions and multiple origins: Sociological change, Value change, Institutional change, Party change, Party system change, Administrative culture change. These developments raise a large number of (also normative) questions that are extremely relevant for modern political science. The main research question for this project is how the processes of participation and representation are being affected by these social changes, and in turn, what effect participation and representation patterns have on the legitimacy of democratic government. We want to look at citizens (participation, attitudes), at political parties (organization, strategies), at other intermediary organizations (media, social movements) and at political decision-makers (role perception, links with society). This multi-facetted research will be broken down in several smaller projects or work packages. What all these packages have in common, however, is the fact that they investigate aspects of the same central research question. There will be two major common research instruments that will take on board questions from most of the work packages and that will deeply integrate the whole project: a pre- and post-electoral (population) survey (panel) for the regional elections in Belgium (2009) and an international survey of members of national and regional parliaments. Research themes:- Changing Patterns of Citizen Participation.- The Transformation of Political Trust.- Media, parties and voters.- Protest and transitory engagements.- Party members and representation in multi-layered systems.-Representation in (and of) multiple territories. ]

La qualité de la démocratie [Quality of democracy]
'What a good democracy?' is an old question in political science. It has been addressed by various scholars in normative terms nourishing the intellectual debate in political theory. On the one hand, the last two decades the question of the democratic deficit of the European Union has become one of the most popular topics of conferences in European studies. On the other hand, at the domestic level, political scientists never tired mentioning the weaknesses of the nascent democracies in Central and Eastern Europe, in Latin America and in other parts of the world where 'democracy' just recently became 'the only game in town'. In recent years the focus of the literature on democracy and the quality of democracy has changed, moving from the analysis of newly democratic regimes in Latin American countries, southern Europe, and Central and Eastern Europe, to the analysis of consolidated democracies. The idea of a democracy's crisis linked to the globalization and europeanization processes in Western Europe highlighted the importance of analyzing even the state of the western democracies. At this point, a theoretical approach that goes beyond single regional specificities and constitutes a framework for the analysis of different democratic systems, even through the comparative method, is needed for a better understanding of the transformation of the European democracies 'The state' and 'the quality of democracy' arouse the interest of a growing number of political scientists. What is changing in the functioning of our democracies, compared to what and under what conditions? What these new transformations are like and what impact do they have on our democratic regimes? What are the 'new' features of our democracies? How to integrate 'the functioning'/outputs of a democracy in the understanding of the state of democracy? How can we improve our understanding of the processes that were transforming the state of consolidated/nascent democracies? According to the empirical evidence scholars take into account and the theoretical assumptions about key variables and the environment within action takes place, the conclusions to these questions are not yet fully convincing for at least two reasons. The first one is that democracy has not a consensual or clear cut definition. The second one is related to the attention paid to the constitutional designs of political regimes without taking into account the policy practice. Speaking about the 'quality' or the 'state' of democracy implies to provide not only an appropriate definition of what a 'good' democracy is but also a coherent picture of the main transformations and challenges faced by our democracies. This research agenda developed within the CEVIPOL considers different innovations as a necessary step to progress: it is necessary to take into consideration the plurality of the empirical fields and topics. But also the inputs of the democratic system (political parties, civil society, participation, responsiveness) and on the other hand the outputs (institutions, public policies). Renewing this research agenda implies the multi-level nature of the analysis, with a particular attention to the supra-national and regional level; the methodological pluralism, with the aim to bring together qualitative and quantitative approaches in a case-oriented perspective.

RECON Reconstituting Democracy in Europe [RECON Reconstituting Democracy in Europe]
Ses objectifs sont de clarifier les modèles de démocratie en recomposition en Europe et leurs implications en termes de pluralisme, de diversité et de gouvernance multi-niveaux. Les membres du CEVIPOL associés à RECON sont François Foret, Amandine Crespy et Paul Magnette. L'équipe ULB de RECON (qui compte aussi Justine Lacroix et Janie Pelabay, du Centre de Théorie Politique) a suscité des conférences et publications d'ouvrages et d'articles en français et anglais autour du rôle des intellectuels publics en politique et de l'adaptation des modèles nationaux aux évolutions sociétales et au contexte de l'intégration européenne, notamment sur le terrain de la légitimation des ordres politiques et des interactions entre politique et religion.http://www.reconproject.eu/) regroupe plus de cent chercheurs au sein de 21 institutions partenaires en science politique, sociologie, linguistique, anthropologie, science de l'information, droit et économie. Il est coordonné par Arena à l'Université d'Oslo. [RECON is an Integrated Project supported by the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme for Research, Priority 7: Citizens and governance in a knowledge-based society (2007-2011). The broad framework of the RECON project is the following: The nation state has been the institutional mainstay of modern democracy. Today, this particular political form is challenged and may be transcended by something new. One issue is to clarify whether the state form as such can be rescued in Europe, and if so, at what level this can take place. Another is to consider whether alternative forms are more viable. On the basis of different normative models and their operationalisation, RECON tests different options for the reconstitution of democracy in the European context :http://www.reconproject.eu/projectweb/portalproject/AboutRECON.html)' Centre for European Studies at the University of Oslo. CEVIPOL's members associated to RECON are François Foret, Amandine Crespy and Paul Magnette. The ULB team from RECON (also including Justine Lacroix and Janie Pelabay, Centre de Théorie Politique) has produced conferences and publications in English and French about the role of public intellectuals in politics, the adaptation of national models to the societal trends (secularization, individualization) and to the context of European integration, with a specific focus on the legitimization of political orders and the interactions between politics and religion. The main themes discussed in the framework of RECON are the following:- Can democracy in Europe be reconstituted at the national level, with a concomitant reframing of the EU as a functional regulatory regime?- Can democracy be reconstituted through establishing the EU as a federal state based on a collective identity?- Can democracy in Europe be reconstituted through developing a post-national Union with an explicit cosmopolitan imprint?]

RelEP: Religion at the European Parliament [RelEP: Religion at the European Parliament]
The project aims to study the religious preferences of MEPs and the impact of these on their political behaviour. The analysis also includes the philosophical preferences that can be defined as alternatives or contrasts to religious preferences.The interactions between religion and politics in the European integration process are the focus of increasing attention in political and academic debates. However the body of research that has been developing for several years relates mainly to the representation of religious interests at the European Commission. The influence of actors and religious networks within the European Parliament give rise to many suppositions, ambitions or fears, but there is nothing tangible with which to evaluate them. Studying the preferences of European legislators will reveal the conditions in which religion exerts an influence and allow for an attempt to be made to measure the effects of this influence. This analysis also aims to provide useful information on the socialisation capacities of the European Parliament vis-à-vis its members by focusing on an aspect of the normative orientations of MEPs that has been the subject of very little study to date. Furthermore, the denominational dimension is a particularly key factor in understanding partisan formations in the European Parliament and possible divisions between existing and new Member States. Finally, the religious variable provides an opportunity to investigate the way in coalitions are formed, particularly in relation to those matters that continue to move higher up the EU agenda (the fight against discrimination; ethical issues; geopolitical stakes; the accession of Turkey, etc.).
