Young Democracies in Southeast Asia
 
Date/Time: Jan 17, 2008 / 5.00pm
Venue: The SIIA House, 2 Nassim Road S258370
 

Professor Ethan Kapstein spoke candidly on the topic of "Young Democracies in Southeast Asia" on January 17 2008.

He stressed that the recent backlash against democracy in such countries as Thailand, Bolivia, Venezuela, and Georgia poses renewed concerns about the viability of this regime type in the developing world. This talk explored the underlying reasons for backsliding and reversal in the world’s fledgling democracies, and offered some proposals with respect to what the international community might do to help these states stay on track toward political stability.

In particular, public officials in both the industrial and developing worlds would wish to adopt the policy mix (including foreign aid policies) that is best suited to democratic consolidation, with a focus on ensuring that government leaders, who might otherwise abuse their power, are constrained by effective checks and balances. Understanding the underlying reasons for democratic failure is essential if we are to offer policy recommendations that have any hope of making a difference on the ground.
