Explores the extent to which foreign relations factors, both regional and global, can affect the constraints imposed on, or the opportunities exploited by, nascent democracies. To the threefold classification of ‘contagion, control, and consent’ outlined in the preceding chapter, it adds a fourth category of ‘conditionality’, which elaborates a wider matrix of unilateral/multilateral and coercive/voluntary external influences. It then reviews the historical pattern of stages, phases, and sequences of democratization, explaining how conditionality has added new elements to the fourth and the current wave of democratization.
