Abstract

Theories of democratic transitions focus mainly on domestic political and economic factors, though cultural and international factors are also addressed. Many hypotheses have been tested, increasingly using quantitative methods. Yet, the quest for robust positive results has proved elusive. Thus, current knowledge supports a negative funding that there is more than one path to democracy and that democracy can emerge under all sorts of conditions.
