Partner description:

The University of Gothenburg (UGOT) is the third-oldest of the current Swedish universities, and it is also among the largest universities in the Nordic countries. 37 000 students and 6 000 employees, strong research and attractive study programmes. In particular, Department of Political Science and The Quality of Government Institute are involved in the project. The Institute conducts and promotes research on the causes, consequences and nature of good governance and Quality of Government (QoG) – that is, trustworthy, reliable, impartial, uncorrupted and competent government institutions.

What they do for Perceive:

The Department of Political Science of the University of Gotenborg (UGOT) will coordinate and supervise a survey to capture the extent to which citizens in the selected countries support Cohesion Policy. The aim is to have a sufficient, representative sample of 2000 respondents per project country (for an approximate 20,000 telephone interviewees). Each of the surveyed country will have a targeted random sample of between 500-1000 respondents and the remainder of the 2000 respondents will be randomly sampled throughout the rest of the country. The individual level data targeted for each case study region will serve as a key tool for the selected case studies. In addition, UGOT will develop a database of consistent, comparable and timely available information by collecting, standardizing and analyzing the outcome of the conducted survey.
