Jolly’s research focuses on the interaction of political institutions and
political parties in Europe. His 2015 book, The European Union and the Rise of
Regionalist Parties, explores how European integration affects regionalist
parties. He is currently working on a project investigating whether parties
represent the public in European democracies.
Since 2010, Jolly has served as one of the principal
investigators for the Chapel Hill Expert Survey (CHES), one of the most widely
used datasets on political party positions. CHES collects expert assessments of
party positions on a variety of issues, including left-right ideology, European
integration, and immigration. The 2014 trend dataset is publicly available at http://chesdata.eu/.
