Abstract and Keywords

This article tries to determine what causes democratization. It begins by studying the cause of the correlation between development and democracy, and views the models of democratization as strategic interactions between elites and citizens. The last section considers two context differences that might influence the democratization process: the historical period it takes place in and the type of regime that democracy replaces.

Keywords: democratization, causes, correlation, development, democracy, models, strategic interactions, context differences, historical period, type of regime
