This book examines whether electoral rules impact the level of multilateralism, or cooperative policies, that countries pursue. Specifically, this research looks at International Governmental Organization membership, foreign aid donations, and trade tariffs to determine whether some democracies, because of the degree of representativeness afforded by their political institutions, pursue such preferences to a greater extent than others. The amount of private versus public goods that leaders dole out is dependent on the level of representativeness inherent in the political system. This work argues that the greater the level of representativeness, the greater the allocations of public goods. And in order to provide substantial provisions of public goods, leaders turn to multilateralist foreign policies. This research uses pooled data to test five sets of hypotheses using analyses to determine whether electoral rules influence foreign policy outcomes. The findings suggest that such influences in fact occur.Factors such as disproportionality, number of parties, proportional representation, strong party control, and parliamentarianism all impact International Governmental Organization membership, foreign aid donations, and trade tariffs in varying ways. This work will appeal to political theorists, comparativists, and scholars of international relations.
