Even before the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, contemporary democratic regimes were under pressure. The events of recent years have constituted additional stress tests and changed the political contexts in which elections are held worldwide.
Representative regimes have long coexisted with feelings of discontent and uncertainty, often linked to the multiple crises of global society. Elections have frequently given expression to these phenomena, enabling the emergence of challenger parties, and populist or anti-establishment political actors.
This has affected both what happens ‘before’ elections – as regards the definition of electoral (and constitutional) rules, candidate selection, the competition formats, and election campaigning – and what happens ‘after’ elections, in terms of output, government formation and political (in)stability.
The 13th SISE International Conference aims to host contributions focusing on the challenges faced by representative democratic regimes today, as revealed by electoral dynamics.
