Steve Zolno The Future of Democracy. Lessons From the Past and Present To Guide us on our Path Forward

What is democracy and where did it come from? Is it a new development or was it always present in human society? And perhaps the most important question: what can we do to preserve and strengthen democracy among the forces that oppose it?In this book we explore trends throughout history that have brought democratic – and undemocratic – government to people wherever civilization exists. We discuss where democracy has been most, and least, successful and why. But our most important task is to clarify what each of us can do, as politicians or ordinary citizens, to bring the benefits of democracy more fully into the personal and political lives of those who cherish it. Includes the section: Guide to Voting in a Democracy–

Akudo Chinedu Ojoh Democracy and Sustainable Development in Nigeria

Research paper from the year 2008 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, grade: none, University of Jaume I, language: English, abstract: In contemporary time, democracy has turned out to be the most supported political tool for development and social change, which has attained near global acclaim and admiration by many world leaders. Although it is contestable, the reasons for this vary. First, democracy has gained acceptability as a form of government based on equity and justice. Secondly, it purports to uphold the rule of law, and as well, guarantee the preservation of human rights.As it is assumed that effective strategies adopted and properly implemented by a nation have the tendency to accelerate progress in the development of the said nation, this work examined some strategies for sustainable development in Nigeria. It highlighted existing strategies for development in the country, examined progress and challenges in implementing the strategies, and further identified measures which when adopted and implemented, will likely change the social, economic, and political condition of the country for economic growth and sustainable development.

Steven T. Wuhs Savage Democracy. Institutional Change and Party Development in Mexico

Mexico finally shed its authoritarian past with the victory of the PAN candidate Vicente Fox in the 2000 election. But the consolidation and growth of democracy in Mexico have been complicated by the institutional residues of the past. Steven Wuhs's investigation of the PAN and PRD begins by depicting how the PRI functioned and then, in successive chapters, compares how PAN and PRD leaders reacted to the PRI's institutions in choosing rules for selecting candidates to run for office, organizing their party's bureaucracy, and linking to groups in civil society. What he shows is that "savage democracy has undermined the nomination of electable candidates, fostered intense intraparty factions and fights, and interfered with the development of party organizations capable of mounting effective campaigns."

Aijan Sharshenova The European Union.s Democracy Promotion in Central Asia. A Study of Political Interests, Influence, and Development in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan in 2007-2013

Brussels made democracy, human rights, the rule of law, and good governance its top co-operation priorities in the EU Strategy Framework towards Central Asia for 2007-2013. This book examines two interrelated questions: To what extent has EU democracy promotion in Central Asia been successful? And, to the extent that it was successful, why was it so?The book presents a comprehensive analytical framework for the evaluation of democracy promotion, including factors which may facilitate or hinder democratic development in Central Asia. It demonstrates the validity of a holistic approach to analyzing impediments of democracy promotion meaning that external pro-democratic support is affected by a variety of diverse factors whose impact can vary as international, regional, and domestic conditions change.The stable and rich authoritarian state of Kazakhstan is different from the much poorer Kyrgyzstan-a state prone to political instability, but also to democratic openings. By contrasting the success of democracy promotion in these two countries which have different strategic importance for the EU, this study provides valuable insights into how non-normative interests interfere with normatively driven policies.

Can Educators Make a Difference. Experimenting with and Experiencing, Democracy in Education

As the title of this book suggests, how we understand, perceive and experience democracy mayhave a significant effect on how we actually engage in, and with, democracy. Within theeducational context, this is a key concern, and forms the basis of the research presented in thisvolume within a critical, comparative analysis. The Global Doing Democracy Research Project(GDDRP), which currently has some 70 scholars in over 20 countries examining how educatorsdo democracy, provides the framework in which diverse scholars explore a host of concerns related to democracy and democraticeducation, including the impact of neoliberalism, political literacy, critical engagement, teaching and learning for and about democracy,social justice, and the meaning of power/power relations within the educational context.Ultimately, the contributors of this book collectively ask: can there be democracy without a critically engaged education, and,importantly, what role do educators play in this context and process? Why many educators in diverse contexts believe that they areunable, dissuaded and/or prevented from doing thick democratic education is problematized in this book but the authors also seek toillustrate that, despite the challenges, barriers and concerns about doing democracy in education, something can, and should, be done todevelop, cultivate and ingratiate schools and society with more meaningful democratic practices and processes.This book breaks new ground by using a similar empirical me...

Mikko Valtonen Radical Democratic Education

The relationship between democracy and education is always one of the core questions when it comes to the existence, continuity, and development of a democratic society. In the spirit of the original sense of philosophy, this is, the loving of wisdom, Mikko Valtonen pursues in this book a perspective of a wise educator and asks through insightful philosophical analysis what could be the nature of the most wise and best education imaginable. The book consists of seven key dimensions of radical democratic education which include 1) democracy as a radical and progressive form of living, 2) liberating and therapeutic view on education, 3) melioristic worldview, 4) the ideal of self-critical reason, 5) hope as a fundamental attitude in education, 6) the ideal of peace and non-violence, and 7) synthesis of theory and practice. In the spirit of radical democracy theory, Valtonen defends the extension and radical deepening of democracy in all educational practices and understands democracy broadly as an active, communal, and value-based form of living deeply defining our whole human existence instead of being a mere quality of a political system.

Sunday Layi Oladipupo Roadmap to Nigerian Democracy. Issues and Challenges

Roadmap to Nigerian Democracy: Issues and Challenges examined the transition from military administration to civilian government in Nigeria. This piece covered the period between 1999 and 2007. It articulated the imbroglio that beclouded the transition with references to some of the inherent paradoxes. The book adopted utilitarianism to recommend the need for good governance that transcends the current practice of democracy in Nigeria. The book built on the utilitarian principle to advocate for a viable democratic culture that centred on sustainable development, adequate social and functional support scheme, which will enhance and guarantee social, economic and political pluralism. This social support scheme must in turn have poverty eradication as its major task. Thus, it has to create an enabling environment where there will be room for free education, free health care services, easy and accessible road network for transportation, etc., knowing full well that democracy that failed to eradicate poverty is not and can never be democracy in the real sense of it.

Dariusz Sawasciuk Freiheit, Demokratie und Rechtsstaat

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Kulturwissenschaften - Allgemeines und Begriffe, Note: 2.0999999, Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: (Diese Diplomarbeit ist auf deutsch)AbstractThree terms: freedom, democracy and constitutional state have a great meaning in modern political discussions and the ideas represented by them form an interrelated complex. Nowadays there is no possibility to lead political discussion without referring, at least nearly, to the intrinsic meaning of such terms. The subject and the relationships between freedom, democracy and constitutional state will be critical examined in this paper, which has three chapters corresponding to these main terms. Diverse topics that stand in manifold relations are discussed in every chapter. The arrangement of this paper should be seen first of all as a structural help, because of the fact that the terms imply and determinate each other. This complexity of freedom, democracy and constitutional state means also that a separate consideration of one of these terms can not be sufficient, because many aspects are context-related. The analysis focuses on critical scrutiny. This paper takes into consideration possible negative consequences if the freedom, democracy and constitutional state are not implemented simultaneously into a policy. Generally it is attempted to show that the development of a state can take unintended and questionable course if the importance and compleme...
