(p.175) 8 Conclusion

Robert Elgie

Oxford University Press

The book ends by revisiting the standard problems of semi-presidentialism that were identified in Chapter 1 and placing them in the context of the findings about premier-presidentialism and president-parliamentarism that were identified over the course of the book as a whole. Why was so little support found for the problem of cohabitation and a divided executive? To what extent is minority government a problem for semi-presidential countries? What is the relationship between presidential power and the form of semi-presidentialism? Addressing these questions helps to generate a research agenda for the next generation of semi-presidential studies.

Keywords:   semi-presidentialism, cohabitation, divided minority government, divided executive
