Abstract [en]

This study maps the general lines of semi-presidential research with regard to theory, topics and methods. We identify research gaps and provide recommendations for future studies. The review includes a general screening of 327 publications covering the period 1970-2015, and a close reading of 65 selected publications. Our findings suggest that inconsistent use of regime type definitions have limited possibilities for generalizations. We track the influence of some seminal articles, and the recent trend of focusing on the role and powers of the president. We call for more studies beyond Europe, and suggest that the field would benefit from including Historical and Normative Institutionalism. Finally, we argue for more studies on public administration relevant to the functioning of semi-presidential government.
