  2. 2. Funding Nonviolent Resistance : Understanding Variation in Democratic Outcomes After Nonviolent Campaigns

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för freds- och konfliktforskning

    Author : Johanna Hedman; [2019]
    Keywords : nonviolent campaigns; democracy assistance; democratization; regime change; nonviolent resistance;

    Abstract : Previous research has found that nonviolent campaigns are conducive for democratization, but variation in democratic outcomes still remains a puzzle.

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för freds- och konfliktforskning

    Author : Sanna Lind; [2019]

By using literature on nonviolence resistance, security sector reform, and by borrowing the concept ofspoilersfrom policy and peace-making literature, I hypothesise that SSR will likely increase the ability of core security actors to manage security problems in the transition after a nonviolent resistance campaign, as well as reduce spoiler capabilities among core security actors, thereby increasing the probability of democratization.
