DEBuNk (Discovering Exceptional pairwise Behavior patterNs)

We developed the DEBuNk (Discovering Exceptional pairwise Behavior patterNs) platform as a tool which allows the discovery of exceptional pairwise behavior between groups of parliamentarians. The current platform allows to query the 6th, 7th and 8th EU parliament so as to find highly and relevant conflictual/consensual contexts between groups ofparliamentarians. The specificity of such finding is that, the returned results correspond to contexts where an exceptional change of  pairwise agreement is observed compared to the usual pairwise agreement. For example, DEBuNk makes it possible to find conflictual subjects between national parties in France that are known to be usually in agreement (e.g. S&D and Les Verts) and vice-versa.
