What is his answer?
How do you explain the stagnation in the expansion of democracy worldwide since 2006?
Two empirical ways to answer this, not enough focus on the second. He chooses to expand the second view.
1. achieve equilibrium; no reverse wave = durable democracy
2. Incipient decline in democracy: deepening of authoritarianism in dictatorships and decline in self confidence and functioning of established democracies
4 factors that need to be looked at more in depth in order to answer his question.
decline in quality and stability of democracy in "swing states"
deepening of authoritarian states in big and strategically important states
poor performance of established democracies: lack of confidence to promote
Four factors in reverse, specifically in the countries he names
instead of breakdown we see build up of democracy
improvement of democracy in "swing states"
big authoritarian states become more democratic or liberalized
established democracies promote democracy more efficiently at home and abroadd
He wrote this in 2015; Has democratic recession gotten worse, stayed the same, or improved?
How would Diamond explain 2018 Turkey?
