Research Group “Political Governance and Economic Development”


Project “Modernization and Mobilization in Eurasia”

The project's goal is to formulate the logic of interaction between two poles of dynamic governance: political reform and economic modernization, in order to identify the empirical predictors for the success, durability, or failure of electoral institutions, in the Eurasian context, post the modernizations of the late 19th and early 20th centuries up to the present day. 

The project’s focus is on six countries: China, Germany, Iran, Japan, Russia, Turkey, in the following four distinct temporal epochs: Beginning of modernization to WWI (late 19th century – 1918), The end of WWI to the end of WWII (1918–1945), The end of WWII to the end of the Cold War (1945–1991), and the end of Cold War to present (1991 – present). 

The project reexamines the classical questions of political modernization in relation to economic reform. For example, is it true that economic advancement should endogenously bring about competitive and efficient electoral institutions? There has been much debate on the topic without usage of electoral and economic data on the subnational level. The prior studies of the very same questions are often broad historical treatments, or country-year analyses devoid of micro-level data on trendsetting polities. This project aims at ameliorating this shortcoming by introducing a strategic model, historically minded theory, and district-level data on political and economic indicators, such as division of labor force, competitiveness and nature of local elections, and nature of regional economic production.
