Political support for enterprise restructuring and voting in Serbia

  • Begovic, Boris
  • Paunovic, Marko
Registered author(s):

    We examine political support for enterprise restructuring as reflected in voting and two elections in Serbia after 2000. There is no evidence that employment in the firms slated for restructuring influenced voting. However, restructuring appears to have resulted in a decline in support for pro-reform parties. Demographic factors had a crucial effect on voter behavior.
