Party Migration in Brazil

Party switching in Brazil is an extremely interesting phenomenon. This work analyzes the phenomenon from two points of view. First, it tries to understand how collective actors, i.e., political parties, may use party switching as a way to increase power in parliament and in the electoral arena. Second, it speculates the reasons why an individual would affiliate themselves to a specific political party.
