The EU-funded CINEFOGO ('Civil society and new forms of governance in Europe: the making of European citizenship') Network of Excellence is organising a workshop on the methodological challenges in cross-national participation research on 16 and 17 January 2009 in The Hague, Netherlands.

The workshop aims to combine the methodological know-how of experts in the field of cross-national participation research to answer several questions: What do the questionnaires used measure, and what do they not? If 'batteries of questions' are used, which problems come up in cross-national analysis, and how are issues like cross-cultural equivalence coped with? What are the substantive consequences of the methodological choices made during the measurement, data reduction, and data analysis phases? Perhaps most importantly, are there other ways to study civic and political participation cross-nationally? Should other or modified questions and/or other research methods be used?

The overall goal of this workshop is to exchange ideas on methodological issues and discuss ways to improve empirical research in the future.For further information, please visit:
