An established literature in electoral studies maintains that the electoral system and other contextual factors shape the incentive structure for voters, and thereby influences individual electoral behavior. This chapter describes a theoretical framework for differentiating between various types of contextual effects on individual citizens. It also describes the cross-national variation on key contextual variables for nations in the Cross-national Study of Electoral Systems (CSES). Finally, it introduces the chapters of this volume.
