Book description

This exciting new handbook provides a global overview of the process of democratization, offering chapter by chapter discussion at both the country and regional levels and examining the interaction between the domestic and external factors that affect the progression of countries from authoritarian to democratic rule.

Bringing together 29 key experts in the field, the work is designed to contrast the processes and outcomes of democratic reform in a wide range of different societies, evaluating the influence of factors such as religion, economic development, and financial resources.

It is structured thematically into four broad sections:

  • Section I provides a regional tour d’horizon of the current state of democratisation and democracy in eight regions around the world
  • Section II examines key structures, processes and outcomes of democratisation and democracy
  • Section III focuses on the relationship between democratisation and international relations through examination of a range of issues and actors including: the third and fourth waves of democracy, political conditionality, the United Nations, the European Union, the African Union and the Organisation of African States
  • Section IV Examines the interaction between democratisation and development with a focus on poverty and inequality, security, human rights, gender, war, and conflict resolution.

A comprehensive survey of democratization across the world, this work will be essential reading for scholars and policy-makers alike.
