English title: Couch Activism'and the Individualisation of Political Demands: Political Behaviour in Contemporary Cypriot Society
Author(s): Yiannos Katsourides -
Type: Journal article
The article examines Cypriot political behaviour along two variables: self-placement on the left–right ideological continuum and proximity to political parties. Based on data from the 2009 European Social Survey, the paper analyses socio-political trends in Cyprus society, focusing on changing patterns of political involvement. The concept of party crisis is then suggested as a plausible explanation for current Cypriot political behaviour, which might aptly be termed ‘couch activism’.
