Economic development – A prerequisite for democratization Case of Kenya and Uganda

Giola Cami


Political changes transforming a authoritarian regime into a democratic one is conditional on the ground of factors inciting the process. Economic development of a country is a prerequisite condition to shape democratic changes in a country - modern democracies have come into existence in economically developed countries. For  a non-democratic country to become democratized  the structure responsible for the shift of regimes is capitalism - responsible for the distribution of the produced wealth and creates middle class so needed for seeking accountability of governance. Wealthier countries have a predisposition to be “more democratic” which allows the average citizen to have access to resources, unlike “less democratic” regimes where access to resources is limited , not merit based and questionable.
