The national Politics and Power Games study investigated Finnish experiences of political and social life in different periods of time and from different points of view. Themes included: politics in the family, opportunities to influence things in different time periods, voting and candidates, gender and politics, power and political contenders etc.

The respondents were participants in a writing contest in which they were asked to write a text about Finnish politics and changes in it over time, using the themes above. The texts could be written in the form chosen by the respondents (e.g. stories, jokes, riddles).

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
