Democratization and Autocratization Studies

About the Series

Today, studies on democratization and its opposite, autocratization, are characterized by conceptual, theoretical and methodological pluralism, and studies on changes to both coexist, and account for the role of the national and international circulation and diffusion of ideas, and on the consequences of these processes of change on societies.

Democratization and Autocratization Studies offers itself as space for the debate and reference point for all those interested in understanding the most recent regime transition and transformation processes, and to follow the latest developments in the discipline.

The series examines the determinants, modalities, actors, consequences, and correlates of both democratization and autocratization globally, and accepts both empirically grounded and theoretical works. It considers sole- or jointly-authored, and edited, volumes, both full length and shorter, as well as handbooks. All proposals are subjected to peer review.
