RC13 - Mission

The Research Committee on Democratization on a Comparative Perspective of IPSA - RC 13 seeks to support and encourage research in the area of democratization in any/every country of the world. It is also interested in measuring and evaluating processes of democratization in particular cases and in a general comparative perspective, both from the point of view of individual states and societies and as a global process. It promotes individual research and contacts as well as a network of scholars and students in interested in the subject. It organizes panels and, when possible, conferences in which both the theoretical developments in the area, as well as the results of empirical studies are presented and discussed. RC 13 is also interested and involved in cooperation with other research committees of IPSA that work in related areas.
