Abstract [en]

his Essay refers to a comparative study. The comparative study is specifically between Botswana and South of Africa. The main aim is to examine the flaws and shortcomings in each of the country, especially the constitutional democracy of every one of them. By doing a research, I have found that both of the countries share, nor exactly but very similar aspects of history and background information. One thing South Africa and Botswana have in common is industry of developing diamonds. To be able to understand the history of each and other country, it is important to define the time delimitation. The time delimitation extends way back from 1966, this when Botswana became and independent constitutional community. Botswana is, till this day, still an independent country.Meanwhile, South Africa became a democratic government in 1977, and especially when Nelson Mandela was voted to become the first president of color. Mr. Mandela did not just inspire his own community, nor his people about the articles that refers to human rights, he did inspire the whole wide world about his admissions and strength to overcome racism in such way. Today’s view back, at each and every country, there is a clear pattern that these two countries, and many more countries in Africa have made a wide democracy progress because of the human rights articles. Though, the biggest issue these countries may have in common, unfortunately, is the high level of discrimination. While using Rober Alan Dahl’s theory, the criteria’s of democracy will be presented. It is very important to really take matter of actions and emphasize which of the criteria’s that considers being fulfilled, and which considers not to be fulfilled.

Key words: Botswana, South Africa, Robert Dahl, Democratic
