The economic transition in Central Asia: implications for democracy

Glenn, John (2003) The economic transition in Central Asia: implications for democracy Democratization, 10, (3), pp. 124-147. (doi:10.1080/13510340312331293957).

Record type: Article


Ten years have now passed since the August coup of 1991 heralded the collapse of the Soviet Union. Whilst many of these states have successfully navigated themselves through the processes of democratic transition and consolidation, others have not. Although each of the states within the Central Asia region have held elections so that we can speak of some sort of formal democracy having been established, substantive democracy within these states is either absent or falls short of the mark. This article identifies the obstacles to democratic transition and consolidation arising from current economic circumstances and the leaders' appraisal of the political costs of further democratization.
