The Portuguese Electoral Behavior program is responsible for carrying out post-election surveys since 2002. These surveys have allowed us to characterise the Portuguese voter, to understand electoral change, as well as place Portuguese electoral behaviour in a comparative context.
The CEP’s main activity is to ensure the continuity of carrying out post-electoral surveys in a legislative context, while promoting the visibility of data and its use by third parties for secondary analysis, public consultations and teaching.
Currently, the Project is part of PASSDA and is financed under this infrastructure by FCT.
The CEP is a member of the European MEDEM infrastructure, which aims to create an integrated network to monitor the democratic electoral process in Europe.
