Coalition governments

Ignacio Urquizu and Pedro Riera interviewed by Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso

The Burning Issue

Based on the observation of coalition experiences in the Spanish regional context and in several European countries, the possible causes explaining why this formula has not been used in Spain on a national scale are analysed. The guest academics Ignacio Urquizu, Lecturer in Sociology at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and a Member of the Lower House of Parliament for Teruel (PSOE) and Pedro Riera, Lecturer in Political Science at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, examine the pros and cons of the delegation of responsibility in various parties sharing government, taking into account different factors such as ideological discrepancies and the internal coercion that it may foster.
