Substantive democracies allow governments to introduce, implement, maintain, and strengthen the cross-cutting democratic principles and policies of transparency, accountability, and corruption control. Policy-driven Democratization takes a middle-ground approach to democratization to situate it between elections and culture. The book argues that the gap between public administration and democratization could be bridged by the common democratic catalysts of transparent, accountable policy-making and corruption-control. Peride K. Blind takes the complex concepts of democratization, transparency, accountability, and corruption – defining, synthesizing and demystifying them through heuristics from geometry. She then interlinks them together to propose a continuous and policy-based understanding of substantive democratization.
