Beyond polarization : an article by Paul Zuiker and Erika Koehler, December 2023

This article exposes the mechanisms behind the polarization based on Dutch political developments.

This not only allows us to explain voting behavior much better, it also provides insight into how a new type of leadership can transcend polarization.
