Challenging the wisdom on preferential proportional representation

Carol Mershon

Journal of Theoretical Politics, 2020, vol. 32, issue 1, 168-182

Abstract: The conclusion to the special issue takes stock of both the first and the second generations of research on preferential proportional representation (PR) and electoral personalism. The article uses this appraisal in order to locate this project’s achievements within extant scholarship. It argues that the project not only reevaluates but also challenges the wisdom on preferential PR. In challenging the canon, the project enriches the study of electoral institutions, political parties, legislative politics, comparative politics, and political science more broadly.
