Question Description

Democracy in the Global Community

Whether or not democratization is the solution to regional and national instability is a matter of debate. Some may argue that democracy provides stability to those regions or nations experiencing political or social conflict. Others may argue that it would only cause more conflict. Western nations have a stake in promoting democracy in order to encourage other nations to develop like-minded democratic principles. Those principles include free and fair elections, representative government, and equal rights for all. In some regions and nations, there are unique factors that might impact the democratization process.
