Abstract

This panel on the competition between parties focuses on electoral campaigns. Papers presented in this panel analyze the content and the style in which parties compete. They do so from different angles like issue salience, negative campaigning, or framing. The aim of the panel is discussing the extent to which the choices made by the parties affects the way in which the party competition is being shaped.
