Call for Country Experts

Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) is looking for Country Experts to assist with the next update in January 2018, willing to contribute to making the largest dataset on democracy even better in the future. In these times when democracy is at risk in many places, offer a few hours of your time, and contribute to the common good for science and international society!

How to apply to become a Country Expert

  • The selection of Country Experts is based on a number of criteria. Generally, a Country Expert holds a PhD degree, is usually a resident of the country in question and has specialized knowledge in at least one of the sections of the V-Dem survey. For more information about the selection criteria and methods, consult the V-Dem reference materials.
  • Please note that V-Dem applies a rigorous vetting and application process. Also, the need varies by country and specialization, features that we cannot anticipate prior to each year’s selection. (If we do not need someone in your area of specialization this year we might next year; so, it is vital to have your information on file.)
  • We are grateful for your assistance. The V-Dem project depends upon the expertise of those who study the world of democracy. The success of the project, and its continuance, depends upon the contributions we receive from scholars around the world.
  • To apply to become a Country Expert, please submit your applicationhere
