Changing the electoral systems as a research problem

The aim of the article is to review the main research issues related to the analysis of changes in electoral systems. Since the nineties of the twentieth century, the issue has become a popular research. Based on the literature review, attention was drawn to research on entities involved in changes to electoral systems, the motivations underlying these decisions, awareness of the political consequences of participants into the effects of changes in electoral systems, factors shaping electoral reform processes.

Celem artykułu jest przegląd głównych zagadnień badawczych związanych z analizą zmian systemów wyborczych. Począwszy od lat dziewięćdziesiątych XX w. problematyka ta stała się bowiem popularnym tematem badawczym eksploatowanym w badaniach politologicznych i konstytucyjnych. W oparciu o przegląd literatury przedmiotu zwrócono uwagę na badania dotyczące podmiotów zaangażowanych w zmiany systemów wyborczych, motywacji leżących u podstaw tych decyzji, świadomości politycznych konsekwencji uczestników zmian, przekładania politycznych preferencji w efekty zmian systemów wyborczych, czynników kształtujących procesy reform wyborczych.
