We thank all members of Research Committee 34 for joining our panels on the IPSA World Congress 2014 in Montreal. It was a pleasure to discuss a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives on “Quality of Democracy” and to see that we could successfully continue the cooperative and productive work we started in this Committee in Madrid 2012.

All in all RC 34 hosted 15 interesting panels: http://www.ipsa.org/events/congress...

Moreover, RC 34 hosted a panel on social media and quality of democracy together with RC 22 “Political Communication”. http://www.ipsa.org/my-ipsa/events/...

We are also happy to have attracted some new members in our research group. We hereby welcome them once again in our “RC34 network” . Looking forward to the upcoming projects!
