Wikipedia party positions 路 馃搱

Michael Herrmann (University of Konstanz) and I have worked on a project to determine left-right positions of political parties based on party classifications in Wikipedia infoboxes. We calculate the positions of about 2000 parties by scaling of ideology tags.

We presented a first version in February at the NKS Workshop in Bremen and Michael presented the paper at the MPSA conference.

An OSF project provides some further information.
