The European Green Party Membership Survey is an academic project with the aim to compare the political background and views of green party members across Europe and around the world. The first cross-national survey of green party members was conducted in 2002-2003 in which members of 18 parties in 15 countries were surveyed.
Further information on this first survey (EGPM I), including a documentation of all questionnaires used and a summary of the main results, can be found here.
Since 2003, green politics has developed further, and thus it seems appropriate to conduct a second round of surveys to analyse the changes and continuities over the last decade. A second green party membership survey - EGPM II - is thus to be launched in 2017. As before, surveys will be conducted on the basis of a 'common core questionnaire' involving an identical set of questions to be asked in all countries. This will be supplemented by questions on country/party-specific issues. EGPM II has the support of the European Green Party (EGP). Surveys have already been completed in England and Wales as well as Bulgaria. It is hoped that the survey can also be extended to other countries with significant green parties around the world. All surveys will be online surveys and will be funded by the School of Government and Public Policy of the University of Strathclyde.
