New parties now shape our political future. This website provides links to ongoing research, conferences and other events and publications that help us understand new parties.

We look forward to posting presentations and publications related to new parties as well as data and visualizations and we encourage researchers on new parties to suggest topics and submit research and links.

Our own new book, The New Party Challenge: Changing Cycles of Party Birth and Death in Central Europe and Beyond is now available from Oxford University Press. Click here for more information.
