  • The Signs of Deconsolidation
    • Abstract: Americans have long been growing dissatisfied with the state of their political system. As survey researchers have chronicled over recent decades, an overwhelming majority of citizens now believes that the United States is “headed in the wrong direction.” Trust in such major institutions as Congress and the presidency has fallen markedly. Engagement in formal political institutions has ebbed. The media are more mistrusted than ever. Even so, most scholars have given these findings a stubbornly optimistic spin: U.S. citizens, they claim, have simply come to have higher expectations of their government.As we showed in an essay in the July 2016 Journal of Democracy, that interpretation is untenable.1 American citizens ...

  • Britain After Brexit
    • Abstract: The June 2016 referendum in which the voters of the United Kingdom opted to withdraw their country from the European Union was a historic milestone. It not only marked the first time that the EU, after a long history of enlargement, faced the departure of a member state, but also underlined the growing appeal in the advanced democracies of populist and nationalist tendencies hostile to established parties of the center.In its October 2016 issue, the Journal of Democracy featured a group of articles under the heading “The Specter Haunting Europe.” As we noted in our introduction to those articles, liberal democracy on the Continent is increasingly threatened by a varied array of political forces, on both the right ...

  • A Nation Divided
    • Abstract: On 23 June 2016, the United Kingdom voted 52 to 48 percent to leave the European Union.1 The vote for “Brexit” sent shockwaves around the world, rocking financial markets and rekindling global debates about the power of populism and nationalism, as well as the long-term viability of the EU. Aside from calling attention to challenges to mainstream liberal democracy and international integration, the vote for Brexit also highlights the deepening political divides that cut across traditional party lines in Britain and now threaten to further destabilize an already crumbling two-party system.On one level, the shocking result served as a powerful reminder of the sheer force of Britain’s entrenched Euroskeptic tradition ...

  • Resistance from Scotland
    • Abstract: When on 23 June 2016 the voters of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland opted in favor of leaving the European Union, they produced a good deal of fresh constitutional uncertainty. New prime minister Theresa May argues that EU membership is an issue entirely reserved to the U.K. government in London, which will conduct negotiations over withdrawal. Although that government will act in consultation with Scotland and the other constituent parts of the country, May insists that, since the United Kingdom as a whole voted for Leave over Remain, there can be no “opt outs” for any part of the state.By contrast, Scottish National Party (SNP) leader Nicola Sturgeon, who serves as Scotland’s first ...

  • The Risk to Northern Ireland
    • Abstract: The prospect of British withdrawal from the European Union presents immense challenges to Northern Ireland’s hard-won but still fragile peace. Indeed, the implicit assumption of continuing British and Irish participation in Europe was woven into the terms of the Belfast Agreement of 1998, which brought an end to the thirty years of intercommunal violence between Protestants and Catholics known as the Troubles. European integration has exercised a profound influence both on Irish nationalism and on bilateral relations between Britain and Ireland since before the onset of the Troubles, and it has consistently provided a foundation for cooperation between the two governments in managing the conflict. Even before the ... Read More

  • A Transformed Political Landscape
    • Abstract: In January 2013, British prime minister David Cameron, confronted by growing support for the far-right U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) and by a rebellious Euroskeptic wing within his own Conservative party, pledged to hold a referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership in the European Union. By all accounts, Cameron never expected that such a vote would actually be held. Rather, he considered the promise of a referendum as a way to appease Euroskeptics within Conservative ranks and to hold his fractured party together until the May 2015 general elections which Cameron was widely expected to lose.But Cameron won the elections, and he had to make good on his promise to hold an up-or-down vote on Britain’s EU ...

  • Turkey: How the Coup Failed
    • Abstract: Since its transition to a multiparty system in 1950, Turkey has witnessed six attempted military interventions in politics. Of these, four (1960, 1971, 1980, and 1997) were successful and two (1962 and 1963) failed. The latest coup attempt made world news late on the evening of 15 July 2016, when fighting broke out in Istanbul and Ankara and it seemed for a time as if the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Turkey’s leader since 2002, might be falling. Yet as that dramatic midsummer evening and night wore on, something unprecedented happened: For the first time in modern Turkish history, a civilian government was able to call on its own mass following to stop a putsch in its tracks.Admittedly, this stab ...

  • Violence Against Women in Politics
    • Abstract: Recent years have seen significant advances by women in democratic political life around the globe. They have doubled their presence in national parliaments, become more visible as social and political activists, and gained recognition as a key voting demographic.1 Many have welcomed such strides, noting that they bring more attention to a wider range of policy issues, including those beneficial to women; inspire greater interest and engagement in politics, particularly among younger women; and erode historical associations between men and politics, generating broader transformations in gender roles.2Yet a growing number of sources worldwide report physical attacks, intimidation, and harassment aimed at female ...

  • The Three Regions of the Old Soviet Bloc
    • Abstract: Corruption is a problem in many parts of the world, but it poses special challenges in postcommunist countries. Corruption can have many causes and take many forms, but in essence it is simply “the misuse of public power for private gain.”1 In other words, rulers and their collaborators use state power illicitly to make money off the populace.Across the vast area of the 21 present-day countries that once formed the Soviet bloc, corruption flourished both before and after communism’s collapse. Communism created ideal conditions for corruption. Marxism-Leninism is built on the rejection of the rule of law, since nothing can be allowed to outrank the almighty communist party. When communism fell, communist parties and ... Read More

  • Tunisia’s Islamists and the “Turkish Model”
    • Abstract: Can Islamist parties be loyal contributors to long-term democratic consolidation, or are they likely to abandon pluralist pretenses and swallow up state institutions if the opportunity arises?1 Authoritarian regimes in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region have historically excluded Islamist parties from the political process, making it difficult to assess assumptions about how they would behave in power, let alone their potential to stimulate and steward a democratic transition. Until Tunisia’s Ennahda party won elections in 2011, no Islamist party in (or beyond) the MENA region had managed to lead an elected government, with a single exception: Turkey’s Justice and Development Party (better known by its ...

  • The Never-Boring Balkans: The Elections of 2016
    • Abstract: Back in the 1990s, the Balkan Peninsula—and most notably the portion of it that had until 1991 been known as the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia—won ill fame as Europe’s most troubled and troublesome region. That decade saw it become the site of the continent’s worst bloodshed and only genocide since 1945. It was also a zone where the post-1989 communist collapse brought not democratic development but democratic failure: Every one of the former Yugoslav republics except Slovenia saw its initial, early-1990s transition to democracy go awry. In each of the two most populous republics, Serbia and Croatia, a strongman presided over a competitive authoritarian regime legitimized by the red hand of war.Today, a ... Read More

  • The Secret Supports of Mongolian Democracy
    • Abstract: Well into the fifth decade of the Third Wave of global democratization, we know that getting to democracy is, relatively speaking, the easy part. Sustaining it is more difficult. From Russia to Thailand and from Mali to Turkey, initial breakthroughs to open politics have been aborted as security services or high-handed executives have scrapped civil liberties and returned to rigged elections.In postcommunist Eurasia, a region littered with failed democratic experiments and frozen autocracies, Mongolia stands out. Not only did it make a clean break with its authoritarian past when its Soviet-style regime collapsed at the beginning of the 1990s, but it has avoided backsliding as well.Mongolia’s most recent ...

  • The Fading of the Anti-Coup Norm
    • Abstract: In recent years, some scholars have suggested that coups actually may be beneficial for democratic development. During the Cold War, these scholars point out, coup leaders often consolidated long-running authoritarian regimes, but since the end of the Cold War coups have been much more likely to be followed by fresh elections. This pattern has given rise to talk of “democratic coups,” in which the unconstitutional overthrow of sitting governments acts as a catalyst for radical change and paves the way for democratic transition.1 One proferred explanation for this trend has been that the international community is now much less tolerant of threats to democratic rule, with the rise of international democratic ...

  • The Rise of “Localism” in Hong Kong
    • Abstract: On 4 September 2016, Hong Kong’s voters went to the polls to elect the 70 members of its legislature, known as the Legislative Council or LegCo. The election results largely maintained the existing distribution of power between democratic and pro-Beijing (or pro-establishment) forces. But the vote also reflected the emergence of increasing divisions within each of these camps and especially the rise of localism, a new political tendency that seems poised to dramatically transform Hong Kong’s political landscape.Since the transfer of sovereignty from Britain to China almost twenty years ago, on 1 July 1997, politics in Hong Kong has been shaped by the struggle over how to implement the “one country, two systems” ...

  • Two Traditions of Liberalism
    • Abstract: The central theme of João Carlos Espada’s thoughtful and lively new book is the gulf between the Anglo-American and the Continental European understandings of liberty. In his telling, the Anglo-American tradition views liberty as pluralistic, adaptive, reformist in a piecemeal manner, and without a comprehensive and fully coherent rational design. Continental European doctrines of political liberty, by contrast, tend to be dogmatically rationalistic, comprehensive, and even utopian, and in consequence liable to promote revolutions that in actual practice end up producing the very opposite of liberty.As befits its understanding of the Anglo-American tradition, this book itself is a complicated and multifarious ...

  • Election Watch
    • Abstract: Belarus: In September 11 parliamentary elections for the 110-seat House of Representatives, progovernment candidates won 108 seats. Opposition candidates Anna Kanopatskaya of the United Civic Party (UCP) and Yelena Anisim, an independent, won the remaining two seats, the first opposition victories since 1996. Observers with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) expressed concern over “serious deficiencies” observed during early voting, as well as restrictive media coverage during the campaign.Bulgaria: In the first presidential round held on November 6, none of the 21 candidates secured an absolute majority, prompting a November 13 runoff.

  • Documents on Democracy
    • Abstract: On October 2, new British prime minister Theresa May delivered a speech at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham. May spelled out her government’s understanding of the import of the U.K. vote to leave the European Union. (For analysis of the consequences of the referendum, see the articles on pp. 17–58 above.) Excerpts from Prime Minister May’s speech appear below:Today, we’re going to talk about Global Britain, our ambitious vision for Britain after Brexit. Because 100 days ago, that is what the country voted for. We’re going to talk about a Britain in which we are close friends, allies and trading partners with our European neighbours. But a Britain in which we pass our own laws and govern ourselves. In ... Read More
