The Comparative National Elections Project (CNEP) currently includes 24 national election surveys conducted in 19 countries since 1990. It has evolved in three distinct phases: CNEP I, CNEP II, and CNEP III. All of these studies share a concern with the processes of intermediation through which citizens receive information about policies, parties, candidates, and politics in general during the course of election campaigns, thus reviving the long neglected research perspective of the “Columbia School” established by Paul Lazarsfeld and his colleagues in the 1940s and 1950s. Accordingly, survey questionnaires include batteries of questions dealing with flows of information through primary social networks (among family members, friends, neighbors, and co-workers), and secondary associations (especially trade unions, religious organizations, and political parties), as well as flows of information from the communications media.
