The political parties and party system

Patrick DUNLEAVY, Sean Kippin

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Patrick Dunleavy and Sean Kippin examine how democratic the UK’s party system and political parties are. Parties often attract criticism from those outside their ranks, but they have multiple, complex roles to play in any liberal democratic society. The UK’s system has many strengths, but also key weaknesses, where meaningful reform could realistically take place.
