Research project

Automated text analysis of policy-related documentation

Political institution (like the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament) generate large bodies of text. These great amounts of text can impossibly be read by a researcher. Contrary to human researchers, computers are able to read thousands of documents a day. In this research project we look for ways to utilize this ability of computers for the benefit of Political Research. Enlarging the number of documents that can be studied in a project, allows for new questions to be investigated that were impossible to answer before.
