Regional Coalition Governments in Spain and Germany — A Statistical Exploration

  • Irina Ştefuriuc
Part of the Comparative Territorial Politics book series (COMPTPOL)


Chapter 1 showed that scholars face two different options for studying coalition formation in multi-level settings. The first is to treat the process as a regular instance of coalition formation. In this scenario, regional coalition formation opportunities constitute a new testing ground for assessing the usefulness of the classical theory of coalition formation. The second option is to acknowledge that coalition formation games are nested across levels and that the “multi-level component” can be expected to play an important role in explaining the outcomes of sub-national coalition negotiations.
