Decentralization and Political Parties Dawn Brancati Columbia University Paper prepared for delivery at the 2002 Annual Meeting of the American Political Science August 29 -- September 1 2002. Copyright by the American Political Science Association 2 Abstract This paper argues that political decentralization increases the number and strength of sub­state parties in government by creating additional arenas of government i.e. upper house of legislatures and sub­state governments in which sub­state parties have a better chance of governing than
Or does having a lot of sub­state parties in government strain the relationships among minority groups and does it lead to government instability and deadlock? These and other issues regarding the effect of sub­state parties on government and on ethnic conflict and secessionism will be explored in future research. 32 References Polity IV Project: Political Regime Characteristics and Transitions 1800­2000.
