Varieties of democracy (V-Dem) is an international research project which aims to develop new indicators of democracy in all countries all over the world from 1900 to the present. The project is lead by two parties - the V-Dem Institute at the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg and the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame. The Principal Investigators are Michael Coppedge, Notre Dame University, John Gerring, Boston University, Staffan I. Lindberg, University of Gothenburg, Svend-Erik Skaaning, Aarhus University, Carl Henrik Knutsen, University of Oslo, Jan Teorell, Lund Universitet.

The new indicators of democracy have been collected in to a new database. The database's unique character brings out new questions about the nature of democracy, the growth and survival to be tested in a way that has never before been possible.
