The International Dimensions of Democratization

Laurence Whitehead (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Examines the conditions determining the effectiveness of regional communities of democratic states in fostering convergence towards democratization, not merely through the accession to membership on the part of states eager to democratize but in relation to the handling of recalcitrant states, whose non‐democratic government are reluctant to cede power. The historical evidence suggests that the process may take generations, especially with hard cases such as Cuba and Serbia.

Keywords:   convergence, Cuba, democratization, Serbia
