PEMP is an ERC Starting Grant project (2015), led by Laurent Bouton (ECARES, Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management)

The focus of Laurent Bouton's is on how electoral systems function and their effect on the economy. His work is based on models allowing predictions to be made about strategic voting behaviour and the characteristics of the different electoral systems. Current models tend to be quite limited, based for example on the hypothesis that there are only two candidates or on much simplified hypotheses regarding strategic voting behaviour.

The goal of this ERC project is to develop new mathematical models better depicting reality and of use to economists and political scientists in particular.

End of the project: 31/07/2020
