The Fundación para las Relaciones Internacionales y el Diálogo Exterior (FRIDE) and the Democracy Coalition Project (DCP) have published a book that examines how the international community has responded to recent threats to democracy in seven countries.
"Strategies for Democratic Change: Assessing the Global Response", provides an in-depth analysis of how EU states, the United States and other international actors can better fulfil their commitments to support democracy by coordinating common strategies.
The book examines what the international community has done recently to advance democratic transition and consolidation in Burma, Togo, Turkey, Ukraine, Venezuela, Yemen and Zimbabwe, and how it could do better.
Strategies for Democratic Change is a timely contribution to the ongoing debate on democracy promotion, in a context in which recent events in Iraq and Afghanistan and the "colour revolutions" have brought this issue to the top of the international agenda.
The joint publication, edited by DCP's Executive Director, Ted Piccone, and by FRIDE's Director of the Democratisation programme Richard Youngs, was presented at a policy forum in Brussels, on June 20, 2006.
