Reviews

“It addresses a very important and challenging topic by offering extremely rich and well-organised material. … book is balanced both in terms of depth of analysis and breadth of empirical evidence. The use of a solid theoretical framework, the smart selection of cases, and a wide range of primary and secondary resources make the book a reliable source of information and insights for researchers and students … . an engaging and substantial addition to the democratisation and democracy promotion literature.” (Aijan Sharshenova, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 68 (2), 2016)

“The editors have gathered a good group of contributors predominantly with area expertise which guarantees the empirical research. … In any case, the book is a highly valuable addition to the literature on democracy promotion.” (Carlos Closa Montero, JCMS Journal of Common Market Studies, Vol. 54 (6), 2016)
