An Exemplary Case: Chile

An Exemplary Case: Chile

(p.213) 9 An Exemplary Case: Chile

Laurence Whitehead (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Provides a case study of the democratization of Chile viewed as an exemplary case, i.e. one that is not only of importance in itself, but is also instructional for comparativists with no special commitment to this particular instance. It draws from three main methods: theoretical reflection, structured comparison, and historical enquiry, all three of which can be combined. Among other specificities of the Chilean case, it highlights the redemocratization aspect of the Chilean experience, some peculiarities of the country's political class, and the Chilean view of the country's distinctive place in the world.

Keywords:   Chile, exemplary classes, political class, structural comparisons
