"Environment matters: Does the Context Shape the Relationships between Political Participation and Its Predictors" (ongoing)
What are the determinants of political participation? Why some people are more engaged in political activity than others? Many studies have dealt successfully with these questions and identified a large number of factors that might explain the variation in people's political participation. These factors can be divided into several categories, according to the theoretical framework (e.g., resources mobilization, political opportunity structure) and the level of analysis (individual or contextual/country) used for explanation of this phenomenon. Many studies used one theoretical perspective and/or one level of analysis to explain political participation, some of them combined several theories and/or two levels of analysis, but only few researches attempted to test whether the contextual variables have an effect on correlates between individual level factors and political participation.
Theoretical definitions of political participation emphasize that this is a multifaceted phenomenon, but empirical studies often simplify this concept and treat it as a unidimensional by creating a composite score of indicators of political participation.
The current project has two main goals: 1) to add to the limited body of research that deals with the question of cross-level interaction in explanation of political participation, 2) to show that political participation can be measured as a latent multidimensional construct. These two are expected to contribute to our better understanding of the political participation as a concept and the processes which enable political action.
