Jan 24, 2011 POL201 Democratic Transitions HUNTINGTON lecture
FIRST WAVE
caused by modernization
democracy arose from revolution
U.S., Britain and France
SECOND WAVE
After WW2
Japan, (imposed democracies)
Decolonization (formation of new countries)
THIRD WAVE
April 1974 Portuguese dictatorship was overthrown (it was never a democratic country
before)
Portugal was split and plagues by coups
Spread democracy for 3 decades (after 1974)
By mid-1980s democracy spread to Asia
Where military was doing good, democracy was delayed
Fall of Berlin wall and end of cold war important to Asia?
Cold war was fought all over the world (proxy wars)
World was divided, many of these proxy wars were fought in Africa
Ex. War in Angola 1974 as a result of the coup in Portugal. Portugal gives up
Angols (its colony) then the rebels started fighting against one another. The group
who won was socialist who was getting help from USSR and Cuba
South Africa: Angola is a security threat cause the government was communist so they
joined the war. Then the U.S. gets involved on their side and got involved in the war.
The local became a site for global war (Cuba sent thousands of people to Angola, the
U.S. sent CIA in Angola)

But at the end of the cold war in 1989 the conflict ended and no one cared about the
Angola war anymore.
Angola all of the proxy wars and its effects (of local wars) prevented them from
transitioning to democracy
Benin masses started transition to democracy and over their existing government
African democracy 1990
How and why it happened
Reading: Transitions theory pairs with Modernization theory
Modernization theory
Democratization as a long social process of economic development, driven by social
forces, cultural and economic transformation
Explains FIRST WAVE but not 2ND or 3RD
Accurate representation of democratization in first wave as a result of modernization
