My research attempted to build on the literature of one-party dominance and in particular complicates the work by Renske Doorenspleet and Lia Nijzink (2013) on one-party dominance in African democracies. This research is an attempt to map out a new dataset that will indicate the trends in one-party dominance with a particular focus on the Tanganyika-Zanzibar Union.
