About the Institute

The V-Dem Institute is an independent research institute based at the Department of Political Science, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. The Institute was founded by Professor Staffan I. Lindberg in 2014. 

The V-Dem Institute is in charge of most operations relating to data collection and the V-Dem dataset, but is also becoming increasingly active on the policy arena. The Institute is regularly hosting prominent visiting researchers, among these are the V-Dem Regional Managers, Project Managers, and other internationally-recognized scholars. During their stay, they hold public lectures and are able to meet and work with the staff in the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg. The seminars cover topics such as democratization in different parts of the world, effects of democratization, electoral violence, persistence of inequality in new democracies etc.

Each year the V-Dem Institue hosts a Policy Conference which is a platform where users and practitioners can meet and where the V-Dem project's goals, research and findings are presented to a braoder public. During the conference a broad range of policy makers, practitioners, as well as representatives of international governmental and non-governmental organizations are present.

V-Dem Institute is producing a working paper series which is intended to make the results of V-Dem analysis and research available to the public, free of charge. The working papers can be found via: https://v-dem.net/en/news-publications/working-papers/
