Government and Opposition

Government and Opposition is an international journal of comparative politics. This means that we publish papers dealing with any part of the globe, and on any theme, to do with comparative politics, liberally defined. We are tied to no substantive position, nor to any methodological orthodoxy beyond the fundamental principle of intellectual rigour. To ensure rigour we practise blind refereeing. We publish four issues a year. One of these is usually a commissioned ‘special issue’ on a distinctive theme, and we are always open to proposals for such issues. We also publish substantial review articles, many of which are commissioned, and some of which are the result of proposals made to our review editor.
