New Dataset: ‘Narratives of Political and Economic Transition, 1995’

A collection titled ‘Narratives of Political and Economic Transition, 1995’ has been published in the QDA. The collection includes 73 transcripts of qualitative interviews conducted in 1995 with selected respondents from the ongoing study which is known as the Polish Panel Survey, POLPAN (as well as two pilot interview transcripts). The interviews were conducted by Dr. Denise Powers, who was a doctoral student at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill at that time. Based on those interviews, she defended her doctoral thesis titled ‘The Psychological Basis of Democratic Transitions: Self and Politics in Poland.’ The interviews were conducted in Polish and anonymized before being included in the QDA’s resources.
