This final chapter summarizes the main findings of the book and discusses their policy implications. It first discusses the main theoretical expectations for how tools of foreign pressure influence authoritarian survival in different regimes. It then argues for renewed attention to the vast differences among distinct variants of authoritarian rule and to the consequences of regime collapse. The chapter also describes how future research can better measure theoretically relevant concepts in autocratic contexts. It closes by discussing the limits of foreign pressure and by suggesting some basic guidelines to help policymakers understand whether foreign pressure is likely to destabilize authoritarian rule.
