Abstract

Presidential Power has been studied from a wide range of theoretical and methodological perspectives and presents the focus of a wealth of both country-specific and comparative research. Nevertheless, we are still far removed from a comprehensive and shared understanding of presidential power across the disciplines of presidential studies and comparative government. The papers assembled in this panel all seek contribute to these debates and offer new perspectives on the study of presidential power. Focussing on the exercise and understanding of presidential power the papers contribute insights from a range of countries – i.e. Latvia, Peru, Serbia, and the United States – and consider both political and legal perspectives, including the need for constitutional reform. At the same time, papers address the conceptual foundations of presidential power as well as their implications for further research and embed their discussions into a wider, comparative context.
