The main focus of this research project is on the Deepening of Democracy and the ideas of citizenship. First, we explore patterns, developments, and origins of people’s understandings of rights and obligations based on a comparative perspective and clarify how these understandings can cause individuals’ political action. Second, by studying the case of Taiwan, we elaborate how electoral process and competition can determine people’s attitudes toward democracy in new democracies. The project relies on the 2004, 2014 ISSP survey data and the two-wave panel survey collected before and after the 2018 Taiwan’s local election. Our findings bring new insights to the field by using a comparative perspective, contributing to theoretical and methodological understandings.
