Democracy Doesn’t Always Happen Over Night: Regime Change in Stages and Economic Growth

Written by Carl Henrik Knutsen 11 February 2021

This paper analyses “the idea that democratic regime change is not a discrete event but a two-stage process: (1), autocracies enter into an ‘episode’ of political liberalization which can last for years or even decades; (2), the ultimate outcome of the episode manifests itself and a nation undergoes regime change or not" (Henrik Knutsen, 2021).
