Abstract:

In 2010, Stanford University's Center on Development, Democracy and the Rule of Law (CDDRL) concluded a study of fifteen instances of democratic breakthroughs. Eleven of these revolts were considered successful and four had failed. To be successful, a democratic breakthrough removes an autocratic regime and establishes a system of free and fair elections. This study compares domestic and international factors influencing each of the breakthrough attempts identified in the CDDRL project. It then assesses the implications for democratization policy, the implementation of democracy assistance abroad, and the prospects for revolts in the Middle East and North Africa.
