Building: VMP 8 Floor: Ground Room: 06
The rise of new parties provides an opportunity to re-examine the theories, conceptions, and empirical findings concerning the institutionalization of political parties. Which aspects of party-institutionalization matter for new parties survival and ‘succes’? Which factors and processes allow a political party to grow into an institutionalized “player” or lead to their demise? The panel addresses papers that focus on comparisons of old and new patterns of party institutionalization. Case studies, focused comparisons and large n studies concerning the origin and institutionalization of new parties are welcome.
