The digitalization of human life has impacted many aspects of politics in the last two decades. Intra-party decision-making is one of them. However, not much is known about how intra-party selectorates evaluate the digitalization of a crucial decision-making process. Claire Bloquet, Isabelle Borucki and Benjamin Höhne ask whether party members who participate in candidate selection support online consultations - or not.

Benjamin Höhne writes about the fundamental processes of candidate selection in Germany, the role of the parties and future challenges in his contribution to the edited volume by Thibault Muzergues and Dan Scadutoder. The publication of the International Republican Institute (IRI) brings together ten case studies on the selection of parliamentary candidates. The volume is freely available on the IRI site.
