    Higher Seminar in Political Science: The Scope of Party Leadership

    Higher seminar arranged by Political Science at the School of Social Sciences, Södetörn University.

    Higher Seminar in Political Science co-hosted by the Centre for the Study of Political Organisation (CPO)

    The Scope of Party Leadership

    Political parties exhibit considerable variation in how they choose their leaders. But what is the effect of such variation on party leaders after their selection? Does that mean that leaders have become "stronger" or "weaker" in changing parties? How do we understand and compare a party leader's scope to exercise power, to pull her party towards her own preferred policies and strategies and – potentially – away from those preferred by other intra-party actors? What does this mean for democratic politics more generally?

    Paper presented by Nicholas Aylott (co-authored with Niklas Bohlin)
    Commentators: Jenny Madestam and Karl Magnus Johansson

    The seminar is followed by post-seminar with coffee and cookies.
