Abstract

In the proposed panel we want to examine the role of presidential leadership in different regime contexts. Specifically, we ask, what motivates the behavior of presidents and how does their pursuit of power and ambition impact the political system. To engage with these broad research questions, this panel brings together a group of scholars that approach these questions about the role and impact of presidential leadership from different regional and methodological perspectives. In particular, we aim to understand what role ideology, respect for institutional norms, and prevalent legacies of former presidents play in the different leadership approaches and how this influences autocratic reliance, helps in democratic development or stabilizes a transitional deficient state.
