Globalization and Domestic Politics

Sarah Birch

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that globalization affects popular perceptions of electoral fairness and quality because it is responsible for putting pressure on states to hold credible elections, as states do not wish to jeopardize their domestic and international legitimacy. The analysis that is presented here extends previous work on the role of electoral institutions in shaping popular evaluations of electoral processes by exploring the impact of a state’s international position on confidence in electoral conduct. Using data from Module 1 of the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES), the chapter finds that globalization has a positive effect on individual‐level perceptions of electoral fairness.

Keywords:   globalization, perceptions of electoral fairness, international legitimacy, individual level, CSES
