Research design in political science : how to practice what they preach ( Book )
15 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While research designs can be distinguished along various dimensions, we all face the same set of core research design issues. What is a relevant research problem? How can I improve concepts and measurements? Which and how many variables and cases should I select? How can I evaluate rival explanations and which theoretical conclusions can I draw from my research? Which evidence would lead me to reject and reformulate my initial theory? This volume was written to help advanced students of political science and their neighboring fields to think about these issues and come up with practical solutions for their own research. It turns out that the distinction between qualitative and quantitative research is often inadequate. Some solutions to research design problems are common to both types of research; others cross-cut the traditional qualitative-quantitative divide. Moreover, every solution has its strengths and weaknesses and, therefore, involves substantial trade-offs along the way
Civil society and democracy promotion ( )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Through compelling contributions from experts on democratization, this volume analyzes the impact and importance of civil society development and external civil society promotion on democracy promotion in post-socialist Eastern Europe. Looking specifically at countries with a failed or deficient process of democratic consolidation, where civil society is viewed as a substitute or complement to democracy promotion in government, the contributors explore the problems and unintended consequences of external democracy promotion on civil society development. The theoretical contributions analyze roles civil society play for democratization and how democracy promotion can support or undermine these roles. The empirical contributions cover a wide range of civil society actors and current developments in various Eastern European countries

The constitutionalization of the European Union by Berthold Rittberger( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Previously published as a special issue of the Journal of European Public Policy, this volume presents a theory of constitutionalization as well as comparative analyses and case studies to underscore the claim that the European integration process itself engenders a democratic self-healing mechanism. There exists a consensus among academics, politicians, and the public that the European Union suffers from a 'democratic deficit'. But how can it be resolved? This book deals with two core areas central for the development of the liberal-democratic constitutional state: the extension of the powers

Democracy promotion in the EU's neighbourhood : from leverage to governance? ( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
EU external democracy promotion has traditionally been based on 'linkage', i.e. bottom-up support for democratic forces in third countries, and 'leverage', i.e. the top-down inducement of political elites towards democratic reforms through political conditionality. The advent of the European Neighbourhood Policy and new forms of association have introduced a new, third model of democracy promotion which rests in functional cooperation between administrations. This volume comparatively defines and assesses these three models of external democracy promotion in the EU's relations with its eastern and southern neighbours. It argues that while 'linkage' has hitherto failed to produce tangible outcomes, and the success of 'leverage' has basically been tied to an EU membership perspective, the 'governance' model of democracy promotion bears greater potential beyond the circle of candidate countries. This third approach, while not tackling the core institutions of the political system as such, but rather promoting transparency, accountability, and participation at the level of state administration, may turn out to remain the EU's most tangible form of democratic governance promotion in the future. This book was originally published as a special issue of Democratization
