Democracy and Elections

Richard S. Katz


This book addresses the relationship between the different and often incompatible values of democratic theory and the electoral institutions used to achieve them. By analysing electoral systems worldwide, including those of not only European and “honorary European” governments but also developing nations, this book provides the empirical data to find the institutions most appropriate to each model of democracy.

Keywords: democratic theory, electoral institutions, electoral systems, European governments, developing nations, empirical data, democracy
