Political Economies of Democratisation

Political Economies of Democratisation is a four year project (2008-2012) based in the Department of International Politics. It critically examines and seeks to rethink the contemporary democracy promotion agenda in world politics.  Its central focus is on opening up space for consideration of different ‘politico-economic models of democracy’ in current democracy promotion. The project is funded by the European Research Council under the European Community's 7th Framework Programme (2007-2013) (grant no 202596).
