Democratic Development in the Modern World: Modeling Paths of Political Changes
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
In this paper, we consider diferent concepts of democracy, which are most

often encountered in political science. Recently, a number of empirical

studies have been carried out, which examined various factors that afect

democratic development. In this study, we attempted to test the typology of

Collier and Levitsky's democracy. The testing of this concept is necessary in

connection with the beginning of the "fourth wave" of democratization and

the beginning of the Arab Spring. Studies that have been conducted

previously do not verify the typology composition in recent years, according

to the most recent available data.
