Description Even if almost every country is dealing with some kind of discontentment with its electoral system, the area of electoral reforms belongs to less developed ones on the field of political science. If there is not one general accepted approach to study electoral reforms, how to deal with unrealized reforms? How to study and evaluate them? This paper deals with this question and focus primarily on specific question of unrealized reforms - why the reform was not established? The text introduces two main approaches, theory of veto players and the barriers approach, as its answer.
