Centre for Voting and Parties (CVAP) is a research centre that focuses on the study of the central institutions in the modern representative democracy (Elections, Voters, Electoral Systems, Political Parties, Parliaments, Governments, Constitutions and more), with the behaviours and processes that this system entails.

CVAP is embedded in the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen, and is a meeting place for researchers from UCPH and Universities from both Denmark and abroad in common research projects and activities.
