Von der typologischen zur dimensionalen Analyse parlamentarischer Demokratien: konzeptionelle Überlegungen am Beispiel Mittelosteuropas

Research output: Journal contributionsJournal articlesResearch


Taking ten Central Eastern European parliamentary democracies (1995-2004) as examples, this article introduces new patterns of democracy that are based on a combination of power-concentrating and power-dispersing effects of political actors as well as electoral and legislative decision-making rules. Thus, this article contributes to the theoretical and empirical debate about the impact of institutional and actor-oriented factors on the policy performance of parliamentary democracies.
