Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


In the following paper will we examine and look at the political factors that unfold in Burma and Iraq in order for us to illustrate the democratization processes. We find it necessary to include the democracy theories of Robert A. Dahl and sociologist Max Weber. We will also be using the parliamentary policy theory. Furthermore we will use transitology to try to explain democratization processes in Burma and Iraq. A comparative analysis is appropriate to do so that we can compare and assess both countries. The result and end conclusion of our paper is that democracy is more or less a western way of life and it has undergone an adapting process for hundreds of years to become what it is today. Burma and Iraq has no previous history with a functional democracy both countries historic and cultural background are much more different than the western world and it is therefore our conclusion that democracy requires time and legitimacy in order for it to prosper and gain recognition among the people of both countries.
