-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Perspectives World Politics Logo Kellogg19 600x400

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. A World Politics Series lecture by Allen Hicken.

The literature on party and party system institutionalization focuses on party institutionalization as a function of democratic factors. But more than half of authoritarian regimes from 1950 to 2006 had at least one political party.
