Speaker information

Dr Tim Power, Lecturer in Brazilian Studies, University of Oxford

Elections in Latin America frequently produce presidents whose parties do not command a majority in the legislature, thus forcing these executive to fashion multiparty coalitions in order to govern.

This presentation examines the tools which presidents use to form and maintain interparty coalitions in Brazil, Chile and Ecuador, while assessing the impact of these same tools on governance and on democratic quality.
