This paper analyzes the role of political parties in a democracy: how political parties fall short of their „ideal‟ functions when they adopt clientelist versus programmatic tactics to gain power; and uses data from International IDEA‟s Research and Dialogue with Political Parties project to conduct an exploratory analysis of the conditions and processes within parties that may promote the adoption or support of progressive policies, in particular pro-poor, pro-women, and conflict-sensitive policies.
