Diverging Party Outcomes in Hybrid Regimes: The Cases of Croatia, Serbia, and Montenegro

by Ivan Vukovic,

Abstract: In countries that have undergone democratic transition from hybrid regimes in the last two decades, regime collapse was, as a rule, causally linked with turnover in power. Nonetheless, a number of states that have democratized during this period saw the end of hybrid regime without experiencing such political change. Put differently, whereas most of the parties that had been ruling in hybrid regimes lost their power when these regimes ceased to exist, some of them remained politically dominant notwithstanding democratic changes. And while different developmental trajectories of hybrid regimes in the post-Cold War period are thoroughly studied, the diverging faiths of their ruling parties have largely been neglected.
