The objective of the task is the reading and codification of Dutch newspapers with the aim of analyzing the Dutch electoral campaign of 2021, the political conflict in it and the issues that dominated it. Coders would have to read and code the actors, issues and contents of approximately 400 articles appearing in the Dutch press in the winter-spring of 2021.
