Description Taking as its starting point the existing theoretical debate on electoral violence, this paper analyzes election-related violence in Montenegro in the country's post-communist era. The objective is to gather data concerning violence tied to national elections for president and parliament, and to identify patterns present in the data. The role played by electoral violence in Montenegro during the period of democratization is subsequently evaluated. The analytical portion of the discussion which follows targets shortcomings in the existing theoretical framework and puts forward tentative ways in which they might be addressed. Aggregated data concerning electoral violence in Montenegro is provided in simple matrix form, ready for further analysis.
