Parliamentary government in the Nordic countries at a crossroads : coping with challenges from Europeanisation and presidentialisation
|Serie||Santérus Academic Press Sweden|
|Genre||Samhälle, politik och debatt|
This volume seeks to address these challenges to the Nordic parliamentary systems. Due to the alleged strong reliance on power-sharing in these countries between the executive and the legislature on the one hand, and between the prime minister and his/her cabinet ministers on the other, the Nordic countries should be particularly resistant to such trends. Yet, the authors find that parliamentary government in the Nordic countries appears to be undergoing significant changes. It seems therefore that the Nordic parliamentary systems are now at an important crossroads. The evidence presented in this volume, however, yields a rather mixed picture of where the development is going.
