Die zugrunde liegende Umfrage wurde transform! und Nicos Poulantzas-Institut während der 3. Parteitages der Europäischen Linkspartei durchgeführt, der von 3. bis 5. Dezember 2010 in Paris stattfand. Die nun fertig gestellte Studie basiert auf der Auswertung eines Fragebogens, der den Delegierten des Parteitags vorgelegt worden war.
Die Studie (in englischer Sprache) steht rechts als PDF zum Download bereit.
This survey is a product of the on-going, since 2009, “Left Strategy”-project of transform! europe, dealing with issues that can be useful to the parties of the so called “radical” or “transformative” Left, as well as to the EL, in the setting of their policies.
The EL itself has conducted a similar Survey in the past, which was based on a questionnaire answered by the delegates of its 2nd Congress, held in Prague on 23-25 November 2007. However, that first effort was rather limited and referred almost exclusively to the demographic data of the delegates. In this sense, the present transform! / NPI Survey is the first extended exercise of this kind, which will hopefully have a follow-up so that one can have meaningful comparisons of the respective results.
The text is divided in four sections:
A. Profile of the delegates
B. Values of the delegates
C. Views of the values of the delegates on various issues
D. Evaluation of the Party of the European Left by the delegates
The technical specifications of the survey (sampling method, sample size, regional classification of the delegates’ parties, Questionnaire) are included in the appendix. The answers to the questionnaire were classified by sex, age and region. On some issues this classification revealed significant differences in the delegates’ answers. Regional differences were more distinct, especially regarding the answers of delegates representing parties from Eastern Europe.
