Institutions and Democratic Citizenship

Axel Hadenius

Oxford University Press

Makes a broad historical account of the specific mode of development in Europe, involving unique progress economically, militarily, and democratically. In disagreement with the economic approach launched by Moore, and the state system theory championed by Hintze, it is argued that it was the introduction at an early stage of a special form of state – the interactive state – that made this development possible. This institutional innovation gave Europe the edge, as it stimulates, at the same time, effective governance and economic development.

Keywords:   economic development, Europe, governance, Otto Hintze, institutional innovation, Barrington Moore, state, state system
