Voting Advice Applications (VAA) are found to have an impact on the decision-making of voters in the weeks preceding elections. In this press conference, journalists and the public will meet the researchers behind the EUI Voting Advice Application euandi2019 and gain an insight into the scientific background and the technical functioning of the tool. This interactive online tool is the second pillar of a two-fold project, spaceu2019, aimed at informing European citizens on how to cast an informed vote for the upcoming European elections. Developed in collaboration with the University of Luzern, euandi2019 helps people identify which political parties best represent their views in the upcoming European elections.

SpeakerDiego Garzia, European Consortium for Political research, Senior Researcher and Lecturer at the University of Lucerne, Switzerland, and also a Visiting Fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies
