Authors: Campbell, David F.J.

Free Preview
  • The book develops a truly global and up-to-date perspective of democracy and quality of democracy. Advanced and emerging countries are being equally covered. The book not only addresses democracies, but also semi-democracies and non-democracies. In that sense the book is (will be) unique, because there is no comparable publication out there, addressing these issues in a world-wide perspective
  • In its conceptual domain, the book refers to democracy and quality-of-democracy discourses, but will also cross refer to discourses in knowledge, sustainable development and innovation
  • The book roots in theory (conceptualizing) on the one hand, but is also practically based, by developing empirical models (using indicators), on the other
  • The book understands itself as a product and is standing in line with academic research, and can therefore also be used for teaching. But the book also supports practicioners in strategy, decision-making and problem-solving

About this book


This book assesses the interconnectedness of democracy and economic development. It concentrates on how to conceptualize and to measure democracy and quality of democracy in global comparison. The author makes the argument that a quality-of-democracy understanding based on sustainable development relates crucially with economic growth, but more so with economic development. The empirical macro-model focuses on approximately over hundred countries (in a world model) and covers about a fourteen-year period of 2002-2015, identifying the following basic dimensions as being relevant for further analysis: freedom, equality, control, sustainable development, and self-organization (political self-organization). Readers will appreciate the global perspective the work offers.
