I limited the study to South America in order to hold a number of factors constant. Within this region the six countries chosen demonstrate wide variation on the dependent variable. The first four (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela) were chosen because I knew that ethnic parties had had some success in these countries.

This is precisely what occurred in Belgium and West Germany, where ecology parties competed first in local and regional elections, reasoning that voters would be more likely to “waste” votes on them in secondary elections as opposed to important national contests. They proved their electoral viability in these elections before entering the national arena (Kitschelt 1989: 75). Moreover, territorial decentralization aids new parties by multiplying access points to the state (Kriesi 1995: 171). Ethnic groups are particularly disposed to benefit from local and regional elections because they usually are concentrated geographically, provided that the borders of electoral districts do not fragment concentrated populations.

Since social movements sponsored all of the viable and successful ethnic parties, I suspected that these variables might help explain the decision to embark on a new mode of social-movement struggle – electoral politics – as well as the likelihood of success in this arena. My study of the literatures on institutions, party systems, and social movements yielded a large set of variables for analysis.
