Abstract:I test my argument concerning the role of political parties and coalitional politics using a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods. A cross-national comparative analysis of Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia provides empirical evidence of the hypothesized relationship between certain configurations of the party system and specific reform results. In addition, I utilize roll call analyses of voting in the Hungarian, Polish, and Slovak legislatures to provide a more precise estimation of policy dimensions, parties' spatial positions, legislators' ideal points, and the formation of pro and anti-pension reform coalitions. While this theoretical argument has been developed based on experiences of Central and Eastern European countries, it is useful for the analysis of pension reform beyond the post-communist setting.
