Abstract

The study of subnational political dynamics has acquired relevance in the last 20 years. Academic consensus considers that it is insufficient to study national political processes in isolation if we want to understand how multilevel political systems work (Swenden and Maddens 2008; Gibson and Suárez-Cao 2010; Suárez-Cao and Freidenberg 2013). Recently, the importance of subnational coalitions in the political dynamics of multilevel states has been recognized, both in parliamentary systems (Downs 1957; Däubler and Debus 2009; Deschouwer 2009; Stefuriuc 2009; Bäck et al. 2013; Olislagers and Steyvers 2015; Pappi et al. 2015) and in presidential ones (Kinzo 2003; Lourenço 2003; Krause and Alves Godoi 2005; Braga 2006; Fleischer 2007; Machado 2009; Reynoso 2011; Méndez de Hoyos 2012; Jones and Micozzi 2013; Cruz 2014, Miño 2014; Clerici 2016).
