Thursday, July 13, 2017: 9:00 AM-10:45 AM
Gilbert Scott Building - Room 253 (University of Glasgow)
The panel focuses on the "cultural and socioeconomic sources of democratization and democratic stability" and discusses issues like the consequences for democracy’s prospects of religious doctrines and state-church relationships; the different sorts of early suffrage restriction criteria (age, property, literacy, occupation, income, taxation, and ethnicity/religion); the long-run consequences of Leninist socioeconomic modernization from above for democratic stability; and how early and varying pathways of suffrage expansion condition future constellations of social rights.
