Political analysis and electoral behavior
IDIS Viitorul provides consultancy in the field of political analysis and electoral behavior. The institution has developed several analyzes and researches in the field. Politics cover only a rather narrow segment of the polity in the modern world. Polity demands precision, expertise, knowledge and good spirit, which is largely reflected through the team-work, conducted by IDIS in the area of public policy making. IDIS works to assist national, sub-national and local levels of government to gauge electoral politics, assess statistical data and streamline regulations. Only through decentralized local authorities, states can function to the level of expectations of their citizens. But, local executives without political support and legitimacy of their populations cannot be durable and cannot generate public services of high quality. The result is that public bodies, citizens and businesses can work together to improve society. IDIS can consult interested entities in electoral behavior, politics, but also on mapping various cycles of public policies at the national and regional level.
