This week I am at the 6th Annual General Conference of the European Political Science Association (EPSA) in Brussels. I will present my paper ‘Risk or Reward: Party strategies and extra-parliamentarian electors in German presidential elections, 1949-2012’. In it I examine the inclusion of electors that do not hold legislative office into the state delegation to the Federal Convention (view the abstract here). More information as well as my original data will be available via runningforpresident.org in due course.
My paper ‘Revisiting non-partisan cabinet ministers as a measure of presidential involvement in government formation‘ has been accepted for presentation at the 5th Annual General Conference of the European Political Science Association (EPSA), 25-27 June 2015, in Vienna, Austria.
