Abstract

Does democracy fail in poor states, with weak economies and a lack of basic education? According to Jack Corbett and Wouter Veenendaal, this isn’t the case (though it is often thought to be). Sharing the findings of new research, they argue that smaller states particularly can create healthy and sustainable democracies, with more than half of low-income democracies coming under the definition of small states.
