Regimes and Political Institutions

Regimes and Political Institutions

This research group studies the institutions, located at different levels of government, which regulate a political community, organize the political system and shape the interplay between elites and mass publics.

It deals with both long-term legacies and contemporary challenges to national and international regimes, focusing on two main areas: the historical trajectories that framed the modern nation-state and the dynamics and challenges of contemporary democracies. It pays particular attention to the specificity of the Portuguese case, (i.e. the late adoption of both a liberal-democratic state and a modern conception of citizenship rights) but always relating it to historical and international comparison, especially in regard to Southern Europe and Latin America.

The research agenda is structured around the following issues:

  • Processes of regime change;
  • The transformations of representative democracy;
  • The constitutional diffusion of political regimes;
  • The development of multi-level systems of governance, above and below the nation-state;
  • The institutional and political conditions that contribute to sustainable social, economic and environmental development, policy effectiveness and public accountability;
  • The persistence, reproduction and change of political elites;
  • And finally, the impact of social movements on institutional politics: the demand for more comprehensive control over policies and political elites by citizens.
