An increasing number of presidents around the world lack a majority in the legislature. This has encouraged leaders to form cross-party alliances in order to secure the success of their policy agendas, a form of politics known as "coalitional presidentialism". The Coalitional Presidentialism Project, an ESRC funded research programme (REF: RES-062-23-2892) of Oxford University, explains how presidents form and manage coalitions, and the impact that this has on the way that government works and the prospects for democratic consolidation. The project conducted original fieldwork in Armenia, Benin, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Kenya, Malawi, Russia and Ukraine, and held dissemination events in Brazil, Kenya, Russia and Ukraine. The following podcasts were originally recorded at a workshop on Coalitional Presidentialism in Comparative Perspective held at the Federal Congress of Brazil, Brasilia, on 19 September 2013.
