Building Sustainable Opposition in Electoral Authoritarian Regimes

Duration: 2015-2017

Project leader: Sofie Bedford | Project page

The point of departure for the project is the need to take a new look at so-called “failed” opposition. Hence the focus will be on how to define successful opposition in electoral authoritarian regimes, the dynamism of opposition in these types of regimes and theoretically the potential role of political opposition in democratization processes.
