From Results to Recommendations



The primary aim of the alternative assessments discussed in this book is to describe and explain the state and dynamics of democratisation. However ideally, the assessments should also provide an important contribution to the wider discussion on the options of democratisation. This is for two reasons. First, because it is crucial to add uncompromising academic research and propositions to the public discourse on democracy. This discourse tends to be dominated by powerful domestic and foreign interests. Second, because the democracy activists and their supporters who contribute their knowledge and contacts to the assessments are usually eager to use the results in their deliberations on how to move forward and then it is a necessary to provide the best inputs. At best, the results and conclusions may thus serve as a point of departure for discussions on more unifying priorities and broader alliances.
