Executive Government’

Abstrakt

In its modern understanding, executive government exists only after the successful separation of powers and the establishment of parliaments. The various types of executives are defined mainly by their method of creation and relations with the legislature. Constitutional and other rules’ silence regarding them leaves much of the executive government’s internal life for effective self-organization by incumbents. Institutional rules, functional requirements, and the party-political support base of governments lead to distinct models of executive government. The relative strength of government is largely rooted in institutional and party-political factors. Even weak governments tend to be the most important single actors in democratic states. The study of executive government’s actual functioning, deeds, and omissions still lacks what other subfields of political science have achieved, which is partly due to the specifics of the research topic.
