Citizens, Context, and Choice
An established literature in electoral studies maintains that the electoral system and other contextual factors shape the incentive structure for voters, and thereby influences individual electoral behavior. This chapter describes a theoretical framework for differentiating between various types of contextual effects on individual citizens. It also describes the cross-national variation on key contextual variables for nations in the Cross-national Study of Electoral Systems (CSES). Finally, it introduces the chapters of this volume.
