Swedish party programmes and election manifestos 1902-2002

The programmes and manifestos from the political parties represented in the parliament are collected in database “Vi vill...! –Hundra år av partipolitiska viljeyttringar” (We want...! – Hundred years of political manifestations”). Over 200 documents are included in the collection. The document collection and scanning was conducted within a project funded by Riksbankens Jublieumsfond. Professor Peter Esaiasson from the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg acted as scientific advisor during the project. The documents are only available in Swedish. The collection is inspired by the Norwegian project "Vi vil...! Norske partiprogrammer 1884-2001", developed by the Norwegian Social Science Data Services (NSD) and the Institute of Social Research (ISF). These can be found at their Polsys website. The Finnish Social Science Data Archive has a data base with Finnish programmes and manifestos.
