The panel deals with issues like the relationship between the relative timing of parliamentarization and suffrage expansion and its impact on democratic stability; the impact of wars on the relative empowerment or setback of pro-democratic movements; the long-run effect of forms of electoral intimidation for democratic backsliding and collapse; and the legacies of authoritarian ruling parties.
