This title was first published in 2000: This research examines the socio-economic and cultural factors that influence the development of democracy, and also explores how new democracies can be maintained and consolidated. It investigates the consolidation of new democracies in Central and Eastern Europe, which face the hurdle of transforming their economies. The study looks at the effect of economic factors on popular support for democracy and discusses what factors influence citizen commitment to democratic regimes in Central and Eastern Europe. It argues that citizen perception of well-being is an important element in influencing political support. Case studies cover developing democracies in Europe, such as the Czech Republic or Slovakia, and policy implications, specifically in terms of economic policy, are offered that may aid democracies in their consolidation.
