FairVote periodically analyzes the institutional dynamics of overseas elections through the lens of its vision of "the way democracy will be." We look at turnout, competitiveness, proportionality of results and, generally speaking, the implications of institutional design for representative democratic practice.
Two themes run through these reports. One, "proportional voting" is not a monolith, but a term capturing an almost infinite number of possible electoral systems. Two, constitutional architects and policy-makers design and revisit these systems to achieve given ends and avoid anticipated pitfalls.
In 2006, we unveiled a formal report series. We are in the process of republishing old studies in this format. You can access these studies using the menu at left.
