ABSTRACT

Introduction to the Special Issue on Interim Governments   [open pdf - 53KB]

"This special issue of Strategic Insights presents a variety of works that showcase developments in interim regimes and transitional governments as they have evolved over the past fifteen years. Transitional regimes - also called interim governments - bridge old and new orders of rule. Interim governance signifies a hinge of history, a central point upon which depends future national, at times even international, stability. These interim structures, so historically significant, are nonetheless fleeting and indeterminate. And despite the obvious domestic character and significance of governance transitions, the assembly and maintenance of interim structures is now commonly an international project. The papers presented in this special issue represent part of a larger project on interim regimes, which will eventually result in a series of edited volumes that interrogate various aspects of transitional governance as practiced today."
