Party Co-operation Special Series
Whether political parties pursue office or programmatic goals, competition should be their dominant form of coexistence. And yet parties frequently decide to cooperate with each other, not only in government and parliament, but also in the electoral arena. The drive towards cooperation is particularly manifest under the threat of authoritarianism, but it is present in consolidated democracies as well.
