Following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe, the transition countries of the region have experienced remarkable growth in state bureaucratic institutions without any corresponding growth in capacity for administrative governance, confounding the predictions of many a democratic theorist. This phenomenon of "runaway state-building" is investigated by O'Dwyer (political science, U. of Florida), who argues that it is a consequence of patronage politics in under-institutionalized party systems that lack robust party competition. Patronage, resulting from the conflation of party-building and state-building, leads to an expansion of personnel, yet lack of party competition means that voters have no means of disciplining government. He advances this argument through comparative examination of Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, looking at state decentralization, the development of local state administrations, and the implementation of welfare policy.
