Democratization Theory and International Administration

(p.33) 2 Democratization Theory and International Administration

Oisín Tansey (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter uses and modifies some of the concepts developed in the transitions literature in the past in order to develop a theoretical framework that can incorporate the extensive international involvement entailed in international administration. In particular, this involves re-examining the idea of the mode of transition, which has usually been accounted for with reference to domestic variables alone, and modifying it to incorporate the role of international actors. The chapter also explores the particular mechanisms through which international forces influence domestic level politics, and highlights the positive and negative affects this form of international involvement can have. Finally, it identifies three core arenas of democratic transition and highlights the key points of interaction in each arena between domestic and international forces.

Keywords:   mode of transition, democratic transition, democratization, mechanisms, moral hazard, dependency, accountability
