Book Description

This ebook addresses some of the most pressing questions of our time: Is democracy threatened by globalisation? Is the welfare state in different countries under pressure from international trends? Is there a legality crisis in contemporary democracies? Does authoritarianism pose a challenge? What are the effects of high-level migration and rising populism for democracy?

Democracy under Threat: A Crisis of Legitimacy (PDF) builds on a cross-cultural study of democracy conducted by the Transformation Research Unit (TRU) at Stellenbosch University in South Africa for about twenty years. Three of the countries studied – Turkey; South Africa; and Poland – receive individual attention as their respective democracies appear to be the weakest at present. Germany; Chile; South Korea; Sweden; and Taiwan are assessed in their regional contexts. Further insights are achieved by examining the impact on democracy of the global screen culture of the Internet and Television; and by pointing out the lessons democracy should learn from diplomacy to do better in the future. The ebook will appeal to both students and practitioners of democracy as well as the general reader.

Reviews

Democracy Under Threat: A Crisis of Legitimacy … is a revealing and significant contribution to the current debate on the state of democracy … This volume brings a significant deal of comparative expert and surveys data to bear; but also wisely integrates chapters examining cross-national patterns with valuable case studies concentrating on within-country trends.” — Robert Mattes; South African Journal of International Affairs; Vol. 26 (3); July 08; 2019

‘Is Democracy Dying?’ is debatably the most crucial question facing political scientists today; and Democracy under Threat does an impressive job of explaining what is going on. … Democracy under Threat draws on a plethora of empirical evidence and the understandings of a talented team of researchers to prove that the thesis of a global democratic recession is over-simplified.” — Ronald Inglehart; European Political Science; Vol. 18 (1); March 2019
