Welcome to the project website of "The Politics of Portfolio Design in European Democracies"


PortDes is a project aiming to understand and explore the causes and consequences of portfolio design reforms in Europe. We examine ten West European Democracies from 1970 to 2020, with the support of a team of country experts – all leading scholars in the field who possess the necessary detailed knowledge on country-specific politics on portfolio design.

In this website you will find further information on the project, members, and published works.
