Measuring the public accountability of new modes of governance


Wüest, Bruno; Schneider, Gerold; Amsler, Michael (2014). Measuring the public accountability of new modes of governance. In: ACL Workshop on Language Technologies and Computational Social Science, Baltimore, MD, USA, 26 June 2014 - 26 June 2014, 38-43.

Abstract

We present an encompassing research endeavour on the public accountability of new modes of governance in Europe. The aim of this project is to measure the salience, tonality and framing of regulatory bodies and public interest organisations in newspaper coverage and parliamentary debates over the last 15 years. In order to achieve this, we use language technology which is still underused in political science text analyses. Institutionally, the project has emerged from a collaboration between a computational linguistics and a political science department.
