  • The End of the Postnational Illusion
    • Abstract: Suddenly, with Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, nationalism is back at the center of political debate. Yet despite its growing practical import, the issue of nationalism still has not received the kind of theoretical reappraisal that it merits. Such a reappraisal would need to consider not only nationalism’s place in today’s world, but also the broader role that it has played in the development of modernity. Yet despite nationalism’s status as one of the most potent forces of modern times, mainstream social science has never seen it as a central problem or even paid it much attention.This has always puzzled me. One obvious explanation is that social scientists see nationalism as a passing thing, perhaps ... Read More

  • The 2016 U.S. Election
    • Abstract: Longtime readers will be aware that this is the first time the Journal of Democracy has ever devoted a set of articles to the situation of democracy in the United States. Our traditional focus has been on the problems and prospects of democracy in developing and postcommunist countries. In the introduction to the group of essays in our October 2016 issue entitled “The Specter Haunting Europe,” we explained why we felt we had to redirect some of our attention to the growing vulnerability of democracy in the West, and promised that we would not refrain from examining the United States as well. This is an especially delicate task for us because our parent organization, the National Endowment for Democracy, is a ... Read More

  • The Populist Moment
    • Abstract: “American exceptionalism” is a sturdy if contested trope of cultural analysis. But large shifts in U.S. politics since the end of World War II have been anything but exceptional. Rather, the United States has moved in tandem with other Western democracies. In the three decades after 1945, democracies on both sides of the Atlantic built systems of social provision and protection, which Europeans call social democracy and Americans the welfare state. A broad consensus across party lines supported this policy. In the United States, Republican president Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953–61) ended his party’s effort to roll back the New Deal, while later Republican president Richard M. Nixon (1969–74) expanded the federal ... Read More

  • How Trump Lost and Won
    • Abstract: Around 7:22 p.m. on November 8, the night of the 2016 presidential election, a member of Republican candidate Donald Trump’s campaign team told CNN reporter Jim Acosta: “It will take a miracle for us to win.” The Trump campaign was not alone in this view. Most political observers also expected a win by Trump’s Democratic rival, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton. The Clinton campaign staff certainly did: They were “all smiles” at 5 p.m., when a Boston Globe reporter arrived at the scene of their anticipated victory party.1As the night went on, all of this would change. Trump’s success in key battleground states—Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—gave him the presidency, with an expected 306 ... Read More

  • The Nomination Game
    • Abstract: In 2016, Donald Trump startled the world by winning the Republican Party’s nomination for the presidency of the United States. His subsequent triumph over the Democratic Party’s Hillary Clinton in the general election capped what was surely one of the most surprising political developments in recent U.S. history. Many plausible explanations have been offered for Trump’s victory, involving global trends as well as circumstances unique to the United States. Yet less attention has been paid to one of the key factors that enabled Trump’s meteoric rise—the current state of the U.S. presidential-selection process, which puts a premium on a candidate’s performance in state-based primary elections.The U.S. system for ...

  • Fears and Facts About Electoral Integrity
    • Abstract: When election integrity became a theme in the U.S. presidential election of 2016, many were surprised. Officials and experts had spent countless hours and billions of dollars since the disputed 2000 election to improve the electoral process, and there was evidence to show that their efforts had been bearing fruit: A growing body of studies confirmed that election performance had indeed been getting better. Yet in 2016, the public was thrown into a panic over the possibility that the November election would be a sham.During his campaign, Republican Party candidate Donald Trump charged repeatedly that his Democratic Party rival Hillary Clinton was “rigging” the contest, while others sounded alarms about Russian ...

  • Can Democracy Survive the Internet?
    • Abstract: If one had tried to write the story of the 2016 digital campaign for the U.S. presidency before knowing the election’s result, the account might have gone as follows. “Hillary Clinton improved on the model built by the successful campaigns of Barack Obama, perfecting the art of microtargeting and the use of online tools to mobilize voters through social media. To be sure, her ability to vastly outspend her opponent on all forms of campaign communication (television, digital, get-out-the-vote, or otherwise), as well as her opponent’s relative weakness on all traditional metrics, makes it hard to say whether the new media strategies were decisive. Nevertheless, Clinton’s victory suggests that having a diverse ... Read More

  • The Modernization Trap
    • Abstract: A naïve version of liberal modernization theory, existing especially in the minds of its critics, anticipated that sooner or later all societies would modernize and wind up looking like the trailblazer on that path, liberal England. A number of the most interesting modernization theorists, however, wrote about the detours that authoritarian modernizing countries such as Germany, Russia, and Japan had taken off the main road.1 For the most part, these scholars saw such illiberal versions of modernity as mere short-term successes that led to disastrous dead ends.By the end of the Cold War, liberal triumphalists thought that such alternatives had faded into history, but that judgment now seems premature. The rise of ... Read More

  • Ghana: The Ebbing Power of Incumbency
    • Abstract: On 7 December 2016 and in the days thereafter, the voters and political leaders of Ghana rose to a challenge and met an important democratic test. They peacefully carried out a high-stakes, highly competitive election that many had feared would strain their country’s political stability to the breaking point, and then saw to it that power changed hands from the incumbents to their rivals in an orderly and lawful fashion.Despite peaceful transfers of power in 2000 and 2008, mounting political tensions and concern that the election’s outcome would be disputed had led a majority of citizens to worry that violence would break out.1 However, just a few days after the polls closed, public apprehension turned to pride as ...

  • The Dual Threat of Populists and Autocrats
    • Abstract: In 2016, populist and nationalist political forces made astonishing gains in democratic states, while authoritarian powers engaged in brazen acts of aggression and grave atrocities went unanswered in war zones across two continents. All these developments point to a growing danger that the international order of the past quarter-century—rooted in the principles of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law—will give way to a world in which individual leaders and nations pursue their own narrow interests without meaningful constraints, and without regard for the shared benefits of global peace, freedom, and prosperity. The latest findings of Freedom House’s annual Freedom in the World report reinforce the ... Read More

  • Southeast Asia: Voting Against Disorder
    • Abstract: Since his election to the presidency of the Philippines in May 2016, Rodrigo Duterte has brought his country’s politics into the international spotlight. He had risen to national prominence on his record as a crime-fighter while serving as mayor of Davao City on the large southern island of Mindanao between 2013 and 2016. As mayor, he had worked with alleged death squads, and he has been famously unapologetic about his aggressive and misogynistic rhetoric. Nicknamed “the Punisher,” he stood out among presidential candidates by vocally insisting that he was ready—even eager—to use violence and strong-arm tactics in the quest to solve social and political problems. He has governed just as he had promised: In less ... Read More

  • Jordan and Morocco: The Palace Gambit
    • Abstract: There are ten ruling monarchies left in the world. In these nondemocratic regimes, a hereditary sovereign directs decision making by forming and dismissing governments and controlling levers of repression. The broader Middle East is home to eight of these monarchies: Jordan, Morocco, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Of these, Morocco and Jordan have much more in common with each other than either does with the remaining six. The other kingdoms all cluster around the Persian Gulf, and their historical development has been shaped by oil rents. Morocco is far away on the northwest shoulder of Africa, equidistant between New York and Riyadh. Jordan, an artificial state birthed ... Read More

  • The Gambia’s Electoral Earthquake
    • Abstract: The first day of December 2016 marked a watershed in the history of the Gambia. On that day, for the first time in the nearly 52 years since this small West African land became independent, its incumbent president lost an election. With turnout estimated at more than 70 percent in a contest by all accounts deemed free and fair, opposition standard-bearer Adama Barrow scored a remarkable upset victory over authoritarian president Yahya Jammeh. When the counting was done, coalition candidate Barrow had bested the one-time coup leader by 43.3 to 39.6 percent, with a breakaway figure from the ruling party placing a distant third.None of the Gambia’s two-million people had ever seen anything like it. They could look ... Read More

  • Nicaragua: A Return to Caudillismo
    • Abstract: On 6 November 2016, Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) was reelected to a third consecutive term, winning 72 percent of the vote in a contest marred by the exclusion of the main opposition coalition. Ortega has been at the center of Nicaraguan politics for nearly four decades. A leader of the 1979 Sandinista revolution that overthrew longtime dictator Anastasio Somoza, he also held the presidency from 1985 to 1990, when he was defeated in Nicaragua’s historic 1990 presidential election by democratic opposition leader Violeta Chamorro. After unsuccessful attempts at regaining the presidency as the candidate of the FSLN in 1996 and 2001, he was returned to office in ... Read More

  • What’s in a Name?
    • Abstract: Although the revolutions of 1989 seemed to promise a new “post-ideological” era of liberal-democratic ascendancy, we have long been caught in a powerful authoritarian undertow that often goes by the name of “populism.” In this timely and illuminating book, political scientist Jan-Werner Müller analyzes that phenomenon while warning that it “tends to pose a danger to democracy” (p. 3). Although he published this work before Donald Trump’s election to the U.S. presidency, Müller has since made it clear (in the Guardian on 24 January 2017, among other places) that he sees Trump as an “arch-populist” and a “threat to democracy.” And Trump is just one example of a trend that has not only affected the established ...

  • Mário Soares (1924–2017)
    • Abstract: Mário Soares, a figure widely hailed as the founding father of Portuguese democracy and a member of the Journal of Democracy’s International Advisory Committee, died on 7 January 2017 at the age of 92. Three days of official mourning and a state funeral marked his passing. This formal tribute to his service as prime minister and later president of Portugal was also an occasion to honor and reflect on the key role that Soares had played in his country’s 1974 transition to democracy, which initiated the “third wave” of global democratization.For decades prior to the 1970s, Portugal had lived under a right-wing military dictatorship that was nearly as old as Soares himself—it had begun in 1926, when he was not quite ...

  • Documents on Democracy
    • Abstract: On 8 November 2016, Donald J. Trump of the Republican Party defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to win the presidency. (See the set of essays on the U.S. election on pp. 20-76 above.) On 20 January 2017 in Washington, D.C., President Trump took the oath of office and delivered his inaugural address, emphasizing the theme “America First.” Excerpts from his address appear below:We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people. …For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished—but the people did not share in its ... Read More

  • News and Notes
    • Abstract: The Latin American Youth Network for Democracy (JuventudLAC) named Luis Almagro, secretary-general of the Organization of American States and former foreign minister of Uruguay, as the recipient of its first annual Oswaldo Payá Award for Liberty and Life. The award is named for prominent Cuban democracy activist Oswaldo Payá, who was the founder of Cuba’s Christian Liberation Movement. He was also the organizer of the Varela Project, which gathered signatures of Cuban citizens in support of a referendum on democracy and human rights. Payá’s death in July 2012 was widely suspected to have been orchestrated by the Cuban government. His daughter, Rosa María, is president of Juven-tudLAC.Almagro was prevented from ... Read More
