Democracy without Majorities: Political Representation under Minority Rule

Project description

The impact of minority government on democracy and political representation

Current theoretical and empirical approaches are unable to provide insights into the implications of minority governments (a common occurrence in parliamentary democracies) on party systems, governmental behaviour and citizens' responses. Contributing to this field, the EU-funded MINORITYRULE project will investigate the effects of governing in minority governments on political representation. The work of the project will result in a new theory on political representation under minority rule and bring to light the conditions in which minority governments can lead without stable majorities in parliament and society.
