Abstract

This panel examines the effects of institutions on political attitudes and values. The influence of various forms of institutions is inspected: mechanisms of direct democracy (whether the plebiscite is called by authorities or by citizens, whether the plebiscite is mandatory or optional, whether the plebiscite is actually used), the proportionality of the electoral system, and technocratic governance. Diverse dependent variables are considered: presidential approval in 16 Latin American countries, ideological congruence between the preferences of voters and representatives in New Zealand, satisfaction with democracy in Europe, external political efficacy in Switzerland, and political trust in Europe.
