Abstract: Democracy, representation, accountability — all of these "good things" in politics require well-functioning elections. In order to understand the conditions under which elections are more or less likely to yield these desired effects (or other, conceivably unintended consequences) comparative studies — cross-system as well as over-time — are invaluable as they make it possible to explicitly link differences in these conditions with variations in the functioning of electoral processes. This volume contains the proceedings of a CONNEX-sponsored conference of the European Election Studies research group hold in March 2007. Thanks to the large range of expertise gathered, the resulting papers provide stimulating insights into the specificities and challenges of multilevel electoral systems in the EU and some of its member-countries.
