Project title: Equilibrium theory of institutional veto players
Project duration: 2016-2020
Project leader: Prof. Dr. Steffen Ganghof, Dr. Sebastian Eppner
Cooperation partners: -
The project develops an equilibrium theory of institutional veto players. On the one hand, it analyzes the effects of institutional veto players, especially the second chambers, on the formation of a government and, on the other hand, the repercussions of these effects on the reform of the restrictive institutions. The project develops a new index of restrictiveness for institutional veto players and combines logistic regression analysis of advanced parliamentary democracies with historical case studies.
