Democratization


"Problems of Democratization"    From the Spring 2007 issue of "Freedom and Union."

"Democratization in Long Perspective": The spread of democracy world-wide, when tested on Polity II data, is shown to be a logistic-type process.

"'Democratization in Long Perspective' Revisited"    A 2002 retest of the earlier study, with Polity IV data to 2000, confirms its findings (abstract).

"The Democratic Lineage":    Democracy-building in the European Union needs to be seen in a global-IR context.  

"Enduring Rivalry in the Democratic Lineage:  The Venice-Portugal Case" advances the (diachronic) "peace in the democratic lineage" proposition, a complement to the (synchronic) ""peace in the democratic community" thesis.
