Abstract:This special issue, edited by David Kadima, draws evidence from diverse African countries such as Malawi, Kenya and South Africa to explain and understand the patterns of party alliances and coalition politics in Africa and assesses the extent to which coalition theories can form an explanatory framework for the formation and collapse of electoral alliance and coalition politics on the continent.
