Abstract

The role and position of the cabinet vis-a-vis the president and the parliament in presidential and semi-presidential regimes has gradually received increasing attention by comparative scholars. The shape and outcome of this relationship are conditioned by various institutional and contextual factors such as the size and power of the presidency, party and majority conditions in parliament, level of institutionalisation, and the kind of policy area at stake. This panel addresses the positioning and coordination of cabinets in relation to presidential intervention and presidential powers. Covering case studies and cross-country analyses of presidential and semi-presidential countries in Latin America, Europe and francophone Africa, the included papers seek to contribute to the forefront of current research in the field.
