Welcome to the Vienna Center for Electoral Research!

The research center 'Vienna Center for Electoral Research' (VieCER) was established in September 2017 as a sub-unit of the Faculty of Social Sciences. VieCER is headed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Müller (Department of Government). Univ.-Prof. Sylvia Kritzinger (Department of Government) and Univ.-Prof. Dr. Hajo Boomgaarden (Department of Communication) are the deputy heads of VieCER. Researchers of the Faculty of Business, Economics and Statistics are also involved in the Center.

Due to the methodological and theoretical diversity of electoral research, researchers from four departments of two faculties of the University of Vienna, the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Business, Economics and Statistics, work together within VieCER. The Austrian National Election Study (AUTNES) is also part of VieCER.
