Party Politics

The International Journal for the Study of Political Parties and Political Organizations

eISSN: 14603683 | ISSN: 13540688 | Current volume: 30 | Current issue: 4 Frequency: Bi-monthly

Political parties are intrinsic to every democratic political system, and with the dramatic changes that regularly sweep the political landscape, the study of their function and form is one of the most dynamic areas within contemporary scholarship. Party Politics is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of this integral component within political science.

This major international journal provides a forum for the analysis of political parties, including their historical development, structure, policy programmes, ideology, electoral and campaign strategies, and their role within the various national and international political systems of which they are a part.

"Party Politics started life in 1995 with some excellent articles and it has maintained this high standard ever since. As the role of political parties in contemporary society comes under increasing scrutiny, Party Politics has remained central to the debates, both reflecting and stimulating the high quality research of those working in this field." Michael Gallagher, Trinity College, Dublin

"Party Politics is essential reading for all students of political parties. It has built a solid reputation over the years of being a key source for some of the best research in this area." Paul Whiteley, University of Essex, UK

"Party Politics has emerged in a short decade to be a premier journal in comparative politics. Perhaps no topic is so central to political science as political parties, and Party Politics has become the prime source for the newest and best research on political parties and their role in the political process." Russell Dalton, University of California, Irvine, USA
