Education and the Transition to Sustained Democracy
() and Doris A. Oberdabernig
Abstract: We study empirically the role of education, age structure
and other socioeconomic factors as a determinant of the transition to
stable democratic regimes. Our findings suggest that educational
improvements (in particular in primary education) and policies towards
reducing inequalities in educational attainment play a particularly
important role as a catalyst of sustainable democratization processes.
