Members of political parties

One of the researched topics in our project is party membership.  And this was our main interest in the two papers that were presented during the seminar “Contemporary political parties in the era of trust crisis in politics” organized by the Committee on Political Parties and Party Systems of the Polish Political Science Association held in Zielona Góra Univeristy on November 16-17, 2017.  Anna Pacześniak presented a paper “Members of Polish political parties in the eyes of the parties’ elites”, based mainly on conducted in-depth interviews with parties’ leaders and parliamentarians.  Maria Wincławska delivered a paper “Why do people join political parties and what do they do in them?”  Her analysis was built on the survey conducted in four of our researched parties:  Modern, Polish People’s Party, Democratic Left Alliance and Together.
