Routledge Studies on Political Parties and Party Systems

Series Editors:

This new series focuses on major issues affecting political parties in a broad sense. Therefore, we welcome any high-quality suggestions for edited, single or co-authored books dealing with political parties and party systems in Europe and beyond (by which we mean we are also open to comparative projects examining regions outside of Europe). In particular, we would like to invite book proposals that aim to improve our present understanding of political parties and party system through the examination of the following issues:

  • the crisis of political parties and the challenges party organizations face in the contemporary world
  • the increasing internal complexity of party organizations in terms of regulation, funding, membership, etc.
  • the more frequent presence of party system change
  • the development of political parties and party systems in under-researched countries

We are open to a wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches. Comparative works will be certainly privileged. We also encourage proposals with a strong policy-impact focus.
