The Rise and Fall of Revolutionary-Democratic Dictatorship
This chapter explains the ideological tendency that has figured prominently in post-World War II international discourse as the major global competitor of liberal democracy, that of ‘revolutionary-democratic dictatorship’, the apparent demise of which in the 1990s has opened the door to the controversial claim that liberal democracy has emerged as a universal norm. The chapter also provides an assessment of the direction of international norms regarding governmental legitimacy by considering the non-liberal conception of democracy that has influenced the international discourse up to this point.
