About KURD VOTE
KURD VOTE is a platform for quantitative and in depth studies of contemporary social and political attitudes across the globe with special focus on Kurdistan.
Through collective work we aim to study Kurdistan’s socio-political trajectory utilizing surveys and polls to generate comprehensive analysis of the public attitude regarding today’s issues. Our mission is to focus on marginalized voices that are normally suppressed via various forms of censorship. Our goal is to provide an independent platform for researchers to conduct studies that can shed light on issues of marginalization, colonialism and oppression of historically persecuted populations in the Middle East such as the Kurds.
We are using digital means to further study public attitudes by advanced survey methods used in political sciences which have proved their value in today’s democracies around the world. We have an extensive supporting team and academic members who oversee the integrity of the studies at the highest possible level.
KURD VOTE was founded in late 2022 by KURDLAND.
