Robert Hazell and Ben Yong have been conducting a 12 month research project,funded by the Nuffield Foundation, into how the coalition government works.
They have interviewed over 140 ministers, officials, advisers and parliamentarians. They are now writing up their findings in a book, to be published in the New Year. In this talk they will present their main findings; discuss the difficulties of this kind of qualitative research; and ask why political science has so little to say about how coalitions work in practice.
