Abstract

How lawmaking works and how it depends on interests and decision making procedures in parliaments is a central question in legislative research. In the past years, the study of coalition governments has caused a revivial of research on parliaments, since they are believed to play an important role in the resolution of conflicts among coalition partners and its outcomes. This panel invites contributions that address problems of coalition government and/or legislative politics and their interdependence from an analytical politics perspective. Topics range from studies of conflict in coalition governments and lawmaking in parliaments to analyses of government formation in this context. The panel seeks to provide an overview of recent research in these areas and to identify how they can be linked.
