Democracy and development

The question of democracy in developing societies has fallen alternately victim to two illusions. The first is that of the universal applicability of the model of Western representative democracy : the second that of a certain radical insistence on cultural specificity. In the name of the first illusion, the processes of nationalist mobilisation have been perceived too optimistically, the characteristics of the future state conceived too naively. In the name of the second illusion, the democratie order has been too readily seen as applicable only to the West, and democratie processes that could work in different developing societies have been imagined at the level of slogans rather than thought through.
