    Conditions of Political Leadership: Parties, Selection, Control

    Research workshop in political science, funded by the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES), Södertörn University.

    Pretty much every political party has a leader. The sovereign body within it, usually its congress, selects this individual to set strategy and tactics and to represent the party externally, in relation to other parties and the electorate. Having selected the leader, the party then seeks to ensure that she is doing what she was selected to do.

    Researchers in Germany, Latvia and Sweden have initiated a research group to study party leadership. Its focus is on these two institutional aspects of the phenomenon: selection and subsequent control. We seek to do this in a theoretically informed framework and, empirically, in a comparative perspective, with special emphasis on states in the Baltic Sea region. In our project, we want to understand:
    how parties in Europe vary in the ways in which they select and control their leaders; 

    • whether there is correlation between modes of selection and control; 
    • whether there is correlation between these conditions of party political leadership and other variables, such as country or party type; 
    • what this actually means for the conditions of political leadership – in other words, the scope for the leader to pursue her own preferences, rather than those of her party; and
    • ultimately, through comparative analysis, the causes and consequences of this scope for leadership.

    The goal of the two-day workshop is to discuss, first, the theoretical framework that is being developed; and, second, the details of empirical data collection in very different national settings.
