Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on coalition government, beginning with important empirical work that has motivated an institutionalist shift in the study of government coalitions. It discusses the most widely used institutionalist approaches, along with two alternative approaches. The consequences of the institutionalist perspective for empirical work are then discussed, and this is followed by a section on recent work that relies on structural estimation as its methodology to study coalition government empirically.

Keywords: coalition government, empirical work, institutionalist shift, institutionalist approaches, institutionalist perspective, structural estimation
