The paper discusses the first empirical data resulting from a systematic analysis of the publications of scientific institutes of all political parties between 2000-2010. The results of this analysis are expected to shed new light on the ‘issue ownership’ of political parties. The literature on party competition suggests political parties differ in their emphasis on major issues. The paper indicates whether scientific institutes of left-wing parties, as is often assumed, emphasize social and welfare issues and scientific institutes of parties at the right allocate more attention to matters such as law and order and public sector inefficiency. By linking to data from other policy agenda studies, the paper shows whether a connection exists between the distribution of attention to issues by the scientific institutes and the branches of these parties in parliament and in government.
