Editors' Note: From Volumes 0 to 8 (2007 to 2013), the contents of Italian Political Science were published exclusively online and on a posting platform that did not require any editing or formatting. Since their original platforms have been dismissed, these contents are only available in a basic, provisional PDF form.
While these documents are not consistent with the current appearance of IPS, they are still searchable and with working hyperlinks to external resources.
The IPS Editorial Board apologizes for this inconvenience, and hopes that these contents are as accessible and valuable as possible nonetheless.
