Book Description

Governments may hold free elections, but they fall short in other democratic measures such as the separation of powers, the freedom of the press, and guarantees of human rights. Delivered in two volumes, the first book explores ways in which democratic practice can contribute to the management of contemporary conflicts and promote the realization of security and development objectives. It argues that effective democracy-building moves beyond the process of elections and technical assistance and examines how democratic practice relates to human security.  The second volume presents essays and case studies by leading specialists from around the world that further develop the themes and findings presented in Volume I.
