Abstract

Over the past decades, the literature on electoral systems has exploded. Most of this literature is focused on testing hypotheses against the null hypothesis that Carey and Shugart (1995) are ultimately correct. This results in a patchy and fragmented approach to the impact of electoral systems in shaping legislative behaviour. This panel invites papers dealing with two primary aspects. First, submissions should deal with how electoral systems influence legislative behaviour, including mediating variables, that is, the interaction electoral systems, candidate selection processes, and party organization. Second, we welcome submissions dealing with legislators’ individual preferences and the context in which they operate.
