The article explains jurisdictional changes as the outcome of a distributive conflict during coalition formation in which coalition arithmetic and the policy profiles of the coalition partners are decisive. Statistical analyses of all jurisdictional changes since 1957 show that portfolios held by parties that are quantitatively underrepresented in the cabinet and portfolios of high electoral salience are more likely to gain competencies. Underrepresented partners are compensated by strengthening low-salience portfolios. The politics of portfolio design has broad implications for coalition research, policy studies, and institutional reforms in the executive branch.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dcterms:issued>2015</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Sieberer, Ulrich</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/39777"/> <dc:contributor>Sieberer, Ulrich</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-08-08T08:49:54Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dcterms:title>The Politics of portfolio design between coalition arithmetic and policy profile : explaining changes in the jurisdictions of German Ministries, 1957-2013</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
