Abstract [en]

How may the international community sustain global democracy? This paper explores the patterns of democratization in strategic swing states around the world. Based on Larry Diamond’s conceptualization, swing states refer to those about 30 politically, economically and demographically major states that will have a disproportionate impact on the future of democracy in their regions. These swing states are among others Brazil, Colombia, China, India, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey and Ukraine. It is argued that the patterns of democratization in these swing states will have regional and global impact on the status of global democracy. This paper includes an overall analysis on level of democratization in these swing states, followed by an in-depth analysis of illustrative strategic swing states in different geographical regions.
