Further Details
Abstract "The 'fourth wave of regime change' witnessed the emergence of 'new' authoritarian regimes. The distinctive feature of contemporary authoritarianism consists in its compatibility with institutions commonly associated with liberal democracy. This contribution examines how constitutions facilitate the institutional entrenchment of authoritarian rule in post - communist settings." (author's abstract)
