Party Mandates and Democracy: Making, Breaking, and Keeping Election Pledges in Twelve CountriesElin Naurin, Terry J. Royed, and Robert Thomson, Editors 2019
The fulfillment of parties' election pledges is an essential part of the democratic process. This book is the first major, genuinely comparative study of promises across a broad range of countries and elections, including the United States, Canada, nine Western European countries, and Bulgaria. The book thus adds to the body of literature on the variety of outcomes stemming from alternative democratic institutions.
