Analytical Politics and Public Choice provide a distinct methodological approach to the study of diverse political phenomena by empirically testing hypotheses which were derived from public choice theory. A strong focus of the approach is on the strategic interaction of rational decision-makers. This Section contains Panels on recent advances in analytical politics and public choice. They cover a range of topics concerning the political process and reflect the methodological approach. Topics include, but are not restricted to, simulations and experiments as tests of formal models, strategic interactions in multilevel systems, electoral rules and their effects on intra-party cohesion and polarization, strategic choices within coalition formation, voter behaviour and incentives for party competition, interest group activities or strategic legislative decision-making.
