Coalition Presidentialism in the Ukrainian Patronal Presidency
This research project is dedicated to studying the phenomenon of coalition presidentialism in the Ukrainian context. The aim of this project is to investigate the problem of coalition building in a system with an existing patron-client structure. The study also examines the special features of coalition formation in societies undergoing peace-building, because this dimension has become very important in the context of the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine.
