Series on Democracy and Health Democracy and Democratization in Developing Countries . The report begins by raising a series of questions on democracy that many individuals, but especially foreign assistance professionals, commonly raise. They are anxious to see democratic forces in developing countries strengthened, but at the same time entertain some reservation about the wisdom of aid agencies getting involved in directly promoting democracy. The questions are followed by a discussion of concepts and theories of democracy.

Democracy in Developing Countries. By Larry Diamond,, Jonathan Hartlyn, Juan J. Linz, Seymour Martin Lipset. Democracy in Developing Countries. When our project began in the mid-1980s with a conference on twenty-six developing countries, the third wave of global democratization had not yet been named or clearly identified, and the return of democracy to Latin America was still somewhat new and uncertain.

In the early 1950s, modernization theorists were optimistic about the future of democracy in newly emerging states, perceiving it as the form of government that would evolve ultimately from the process of economic development and modernization. The new democracies, however, have failed to maintain stability and have vacillated between democratic and authoritarian regimes. Through a synthesis of the theories of modernization, dependency, and bureaucratic authoritarianism, Professor Arat explains this instability in terms of the imbalance between two groups of human rights: civil-political and socioeconomic. Arguing against those who believe that socioeconomic rights are group rights that can be maintained only at the expense of individual, civil-political rights, or vice versa - and a trade-off between liberty and equality is inevitable - Arat demonstrates that the stability of democracy requires a balance between the two groups of human rights. A historical review and an empirical analysis of more than 120 countries support her thesis that developing countries that recognize civil-political rights and establish democratic systems fail to maintain them if they neglect socioeconomic rights.
