The Influence of Party Polarization on the Stability of Democratic Regimes
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
The paper examined the influence of party polarization on the stability of democratic regimes. The novelty of the research is that unlike previous scientific articles on this topic, this work is based on self-calculated indicators of political polarization, which allowed to increase the spatio-temporal sample in several times. Secondly, there is reason to believe that the index of party polarization, which is used in our work, is more reliable than the index used by previous studies, because our index is based on expert assessments of the ideological coordinates of parties, and not on population surveys. Thirdly, thanks to the expansion of the database, it became possible to use methods that were not available to previous researchers because of the small number of observations in their samples.
