Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) is a global research programme that sets out to provide the first comprehensive theory of democratization accounting for seven core principles and values in the varieties of democracy in the world today: electoral, liberal, majoritarian, consensual, participatory, deliberative, and egalitarian democracy. V-Dem breaks down its core principles into about 50 constituent components, which in turn comprise more than 300 carefully chosen indicators measuring the quality of democracy across core political and social institutions. The V-Dem Database will cover all countries of the world, annually from 1900 to the present, including pre-independence eras. The research programme is hosted by the Universities of Notre Dame (Kellogg Institute for International Studies) and Gothenburg (Department of Political Science). The research team is composed of scholars from over 30 universities around the world, including NOVA University of Lisbon.
