The democracy advantage : how democracies promote prosperity and peace by Morton H Halperin( )

35 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 1,836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For decades, policies pursued by the U.S. and other industrialized nations towards the developing world have been based on a dirty little secret kept among policy experts: that democracy and poor countries don't mix. Turning this long-held view on its head, The Democracy Advantage makes a bold case that they do." "In this timely and path-breaking book. Morton H. Halperin, Joseph T. Siegle, and Michael M. Weinstein dismantle the conventional wisdom that democratic reforms are destabilizing and that the West must rely on authoritarian regimes in order to create a middle class that will support democracy."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Africa and the Arab spring : a new era of democratic expectations( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2011 saw dramatic changes in Africa's governance landscape. Unprecedented popular demonstrations in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya led to the overturning of a century of autocratic rule in North Africa. These protests, demanding greater political freedom, economic opportunity, and an end to systemic corruption, have resonated deeply across Africa, sparking calls for change throughout the continent. Already home to more of the world's democratizing states than any other region, even modest reverberations from the Arab Spring on Africa's democratic trajectory will have implications for global governance norms, stability, and development. Recognizing the fluid nature of these events, the Africa Center for Strategic Studies (ACSS) convened a Working Group of Africa democracy experts to take stock of the significance of the Arab Spring for African democracy. The objective was to evaluate the extent to which the Arab Spring would be a catalyst for further political change on the continent, the durability of such change, the influence of other drivers and counterweights to democratization, and their combined implications for African democracy in the coming years. Based on this analysis, the Working Group assessed priority actions that would be required of African and international actors to reinforce and sustain Africa's nascent democratic structures

Assessing attitudes of the next generation of African security sector professionals by Kwesi Aning( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Africa's armed forces are in transition from an independence-era model to one more suited to today's conflicts and threats. They are increasingly called upon to engage in preventive action, resolve domestic security crises, combat transnational threats, and protect the progression toward more democratic governance. Understanding how African security sector actors' perceptions may be shifting in light of these changes can provide insights to improving their effectiveness. This study, involving 742 African security sector professionals from 37 countries, assesses differences in the attitudes, motivations, and values of the emerging generation of African security sector professionals. Understanding these differences may raise awareness, provide a basis for reform, and create an impetus for improving the citizen-security actor relationship

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviewing 40 years of hard, empirical data, from China and India to Chile and Iraq, the authors show that poor democracies beat poor autocracies in every economic measure. In addition, the authors offer dramatic evidence that democracies are less likely to fight each other and that terrorists more often find safe haven in authoritarian countries such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan

Why democracies excel( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"U.S. and international development agencies, believing that poor countries should develop economically before they become democratic, have not taken politics into account when disbursing aid. This is a mistake : poor democracies are almost always stronger, calmer and more caring than poor autocracies, because they allow power to be shared and encourage openness and accountability. They deserve all the help they can get."--Editor
