  • Southeast Asia's Troubling Elections: Nondemocratic Pluralism in Indonesia
    • Abstract: When Indonesia, whose more than 260 million people make it the world's third most populous democracy, held national elections on 17 April 2019, it was easy to view the outcome as a confirmation of the country's democratic status quo. The incumbent president, Joko Widodo (commonly known as Jokowi), defeated an authoritarian-era general, Prabowo Subianto, by 55 to 44 percent. Jokowi's parliamentary coalition scored an even more impressive result, gaining 60 percent of the seats on 63 percent of the vote. Prabowo ran a classic populist campaign, backed by illiberal Islamist groups. Jokowi, by contrast, offered a mellow developmentalist vision and cited his first-term achievements. He drew support from religious ... Read More

  • Southeast Asia's Troubling Elections: Democratic Demolition in Thailand
    • Abstract: Thailand has been engaged in a process of democratic demolition. Electoral and parliamentary systems that worked fairly well have been replaced by dubious successors. The once-respected electoral-administration body has become hopelessly politicized. Established political parties have fallen on hard times, while the March 2019 parliamentary election saw an opportunistic military-aligned party secure a larger popular-vote share than any other single party. The military junta that seized power in May 2014 remains in control. It lacks majority support, but its opponents are unable to dislodge it. The recently crowned monarch, a more assertive figure than his late father, gave a sign of things to come when he made two ... Read More

  • Southeast Asia's Troubling Elections: Duterte Versus the Rule of Law
    • Abstract: As is true elsewhere in Southeast Asia, liberal democracy in the Philippines is under stress. Halfway through his single six-year term, President Rodrigo Duterte has managed to surpass the wildest imaginings of both his supporters and his critics. He came to office as the plurality winner (with 39 percent) in a five-candidate field. His campaign had been buoyed by the tough-guy image that he had cultivated since his days as mayor of Davao City on the southern island of Mindanao, plus a slogan vowing that "change is coming."Soon after his June 2016 inauguration, Duterte launched an open war on drugs in which extrajudicial killings have so far claimed an estimated twelve-thousand lives.1 He has also weaponized the ...

  • Southeast Asia's Troubling Elections: Is There a Silver Lining'
    • Abstract: In the first half of 2019, three key Southeast Asian countries conducted elections: Thailand held a parliamentary balloting in March; Indonesia held presidential, legislative, and local polls in April; and the Philippines held congressional midterms and a large number of local contests in May. The news from these elections is troubling. Democratic prospects in the region were already bleak, and the results of the voting arguably made them worse: In each of these three countries, authoritarian or at least increasingly illiberal rule appears to be consolidating.In Thailand, pro-establishment forces gathered around the monarchy strove to put a civilian face on what is still essentially a military regime, "winning" the ...

  • Can Egypt's Democratic Hopes Be Revived'
    • Abstract: There is very little in Egypt's current political landscape to suggest that, less than a decade ago, the country embarked upon an attempt at democratic transformation. Today, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, a former army officer, reigns with an iron fist. Sisi, who rose to his present office in June 2014 after leading a July 2013 coup, is now serving his second term. According to the 2014 Constitution, this term was to end in 2022 and should have been Sisi's last. That changed on 16 April 2019, when the Egyptian parliament—whose majority consists of the president's acolytes and representatives of the security establishment—passed constitutional amendments that extend Sisi's current term into 2024 and enable him to ...

  • Democracy and Dictatorship in Europe: From the Ancien Régime to the
           Present Day by Sheri Berman (review)
    • Abstract: Sheri Berman's ambitious book analyzes the development of democracies and dictatorships in Europe, from prerevolutionary France to the collapse of communism. This is a tall order and an important task: Today populists, authoritarians, and other illiberal forces threaten to erode democracies that were centuries in the making. We cannot diagnose or comprehend the full scale of these challenges without understanding the history of how Europe became democratic.Berman offers case studies that span three centuries and an entire continent. Helpfully, she structures what could be an unwieldy amount of data around four general arguments. First, she urges us to take a long view of democratization, arguing that, "political ... Read More

  • Documents on Democracy
    • Abstract: On April 11, longtime Sudanese autocrat Omar al-Bashir was ousted following months of nationwide protests against his military-backed regime. The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) took a leading role in organizing and supporting the protests, joining with other groups to form the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC). (For more on the uprising in Sudan, see the article by Mai Hassan and Ahmed Kodouda on pp. 89–103 above.) The SPA's statement on the August 17 power-sharing agreement signed by military and civilian leaders is excerpted below:On this joyous day, it is painful that some of the revolutionaries who had taken part in the protests in December and in the glorious sit-in at the military headquarters are ...

  • Resisting State Capture in South Africa
    • Abstract: On 8 May 2019, nearly twenty-five years to the day after Nelson Mandela was inaugurated as South Africa's first democratically elected president, the country went to the polls in its sixth round of national elections. Mandela's African National Congress (ANC) had won by comfortable margins in every previous election, all peaceful, "free and fair" contests administered by the country's well-regarded electoral commission. Much of the skepticism about the quality of South Africa's democracy has centered on the ease with which the ANC wins elections. With the majority of voters committed to the ANC, the essence of democracy as described by Joseph Schumpeter—elite competition for voter support—seems to be lacking. And ... Read More

  • The 2019 EU Elections: Moving the Center
    • Abstract: In May 2019, voters across the European Union headed to the polls in the year's second-largest democratic elections (after the even more challenging Indian elections). More than four-hundred–million Europeans were eligible to vote in what are essentially twenty-eight separate national elections for representatives to the same supranational institution, the 751-seat European Parliament (EP). As with the previous two EU elections, in 2009 and 2014, media coverage in the run-up to the vote zoomed in on the rise of Euroskepticism, particularly as embodied by parties on the right. Serious estimates predicted that right-wing Euroskeptics would win between a quarter and a third of the seats in Brussels, but this did not ... Read More

  • The Failure of Europe's Mainstream Parties
    • Abstract: Populists are everywhere. They win elections and found successful new political parties; they are the subject of hand-wringing by newspaper columnists and pundits; and they are the focus of a cottage industry of academic experts and analysts that mushroomed after the 2016 Brexit vote and the election of U.S. president Donald Trump. After a wave of support for populists swept across Europe in the 2010s, analysts scrambled to identify the causes. They found them in the economic crises that began in 2008; in rising income and wealth inequality; and in racism, a backlash against immigration, and the grievances of a forgotten working class.Yet these factors are neither individually necessary nor jointly sufficient ...

  • Macron Versus the Yellow Vests
    • Abstract: In May 2017, Emmanuel Macron's victory over far-right leader Marine Le Pen in the runoff for the French presidency became a global symbol of democratic resilience in the face of populism, as well as a promise of political renewal for France and Europe. Yet a mere eighteen months later, France was shaken by another momentous and unexpected event: Between November 2018 and May 2019, the country faced its most serious social uprising and political crisis since the student revolt of May 1968 rocked the Fifth Republic and threatened to unseat President Charles de Gaulle.Triggered by a seemingly benign ecological tax on diesel fuel, a powerful grassroots insurrection saw tens of thousands of ordinary workers and retirees ...

  • Modi Consolidates Power: Electoral Vibrancy, Mounting Liberal Deficits
    • Abstract: In 2014, when Narendra Modi first led the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to power, he achieved a unique political distinction. With the exception of 1977, when the Janata Party swept the elections following Indira Gandhi's state of emergency, no political party other than the Indian National Congress (Congress hereafter) had won a parliamentary election on its own.1 In India's latest general election, held in April and May 2019, the Modi-led BJP passed yet another milestone by becoming the first party other than Congress to return to power with a majority in the 545-seat Lok Sabha, the directly elected lower house of Parliament. Moreover, Modi is the first prime minister since Indira Gandhi in 1971 to be reelected ... Read More

  • Modi Consolidates Power: Leveraging Welfare Politics
    • Abstract: The victory won by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India's seventeenth general election was historic. It marked the first time since 1971 that a sitting prime minister returned to power winning an outright majority in two consecutive elections, and it was a triumph whose scale and comprehensiveness stunned even the most veteran observers. The BJP decimated the Indian National Congress. Having long dominated Indian national politics, Congress is now a shadow of its former self, reduced to less than a tenth of Parliament.A handful of statistics illustrate the extent of BJP dominance. Of 191 head-to-head contests between the BJP and Congress, the BJP won 175. Moreover, the average ... Read More

  • Sudan's Uprising: The Fall of a Dictator
    • Abstract: On 19 December 2018, citizens in the provincial town of Atbara in northern Sudan burned down the local headquarters of the ruling National Congress Party (NCP). Their protest was sparked by rising prices and the lifting of subsidies on basic goods, but demonstrators linked these economic hardships to the rule of longtime president Omar al-Bashir and his autocratic Inqaz (Salvation) regime. In the following days, protests spread across the large northeast African country of 43 million people, with participants demanding an end to Bashir's military-backed presidency and a transition to civilian rule.Protests and other political challenges were not new to Bashir. Since coming to power in 1989, he had spent the better ... Read More
