Education and the Transition to Sustained Democracy

Jesus Crespo Cuaresma () and Doris Oberdabernig

Department of Economics Working Papers from Vienna University of Economics and Business, Department of Economics

Abstract: We study empirically the role of education, age structure and other socioeconomic factors as a determinant of the transition to stable democratic regimes. Our findings suggest that educational improvements (in particular in primary education) and policies towards reducing inequalities in educational attainment play a particularly important role as a catalyst of sustainable democratization processes.
