Institutions and Democratic Citizenship

Axel Hadenius

Oxford University Press

Starts with a survey of the waves of democratization in the twentieth century. The matter of explanation is then addressed. Different socio‐economic theories are scrutinized: the modernization argument and the capitalism and class arguments. Thereafter the relationship between institutions and democratic development is clarified more precisely. Most important are (1) a legacy of pluralism, (2) instruments of power sharing, (3) a rule‐governed state apparatus.

Keywords:   capitalism, class, democratic development, democratization, institutions, modernization, pluralism, power sharing, rule‐governed state, socio‐economic theory
