Abstract

In this chapter you will explore:
• what a democratic political system is and the different forms they take.
• how and why the idea of democracy has spread internationally through the process of democratization.
• different views on why democracy sometimes fails to take hold in states and yet, in other cases, becomes (apparently) permanent.
• the debate on whether democracy can be imposed by force in a process of ‘nation building’.
• why some see democratization as crucial for justice, human rights and world peace but others dispute this.
