For the study of presidential activism in Central and Eastern Europe, I created an original cross-sectional longitudinal data set on the use of presidents’ veto power in nine Central and East European democracies from 1990 to 2010. The data set contains not only data of unprecedented detail on the timing of the use of presidents’ veto power but also on the political conditions and institutional settings under which activism occurred.

The original data set of as well as ample additional data (e.g. on judicial review requests and legislative initiatives) will be made available here upon publication of my book in May 2017.
