    Ecological Modernisation And The Challenge To Democracy

    To environmentalists, the contemporary liberal democratic state still looks like an ecological failure. Green issues are rarely prioritised within national or global politics, as self interest still dominates – meaning environmental aims often take a backseat to the goals of economic wealth and industrial modernisation. Consequently, many environmentalists have argued that liberal democratic states cannot…

    Urbanization And Inequality In Latin America

    A recent World Bank report notes that Latin America is the only region where income inequality declined during the last decade.

    Social Inequality As A Strong Obstacle For Democracy

    Invisible Inequality In Latin America :“The Poor Wants To Remain Poor, I Think That That´S The Point.”

    Inequality in Latin America has several peculiarities. Inequality is a persistent character, which has its roots in the colonial time and finds continuity in the subsequent construction and consolidation of the national state.

    Elites And Inequality In Latin America

    On The Brink Of Revolution: An Analysis Of China’s Incomplete Revolution And Its Impending Completion By Minority Groups

    Introduction Although China’s 1949 Revolution could be considered a completion of its 1911 Revolution, the Chinese Revolution actually remains incomplete.

    Governing Without An Opposition: The Aftermath Of The Early Parliamentary Election In Bulgaria

    A long-standing view among political scientists is that less fractionalized party systems produce more stable democracy and deliver socially better results.
