Financed by a long-term funding grant from the German Science Foundation (DFG) as MARPOR (Manifesto Research on Political Representation), the Manifesto Project analyses parties’ election manifestos in order to study parties’ policy preferences. MARPOR collects and conducts comparative content analysis of parties’ manifestos with the support of coders from over 50 different countries. Manifestos are text searchable and include information on parties from every geographic region. The larger program studies the programmatic supply of parties, the relation between parties and voters, the role of parties in parliament, and the translation of party programmes into policy output.
