Ed. 35: Is Democracy Threatened?

Latim America's Struggling Instituitions

Author: Norman Gall | Published in 2004

A democracia está ameaçada?

Latin America is one of the world's privileged regions, with abundant resources in proportion to population. It has plentiful energy suppliea; few ethnic, religious or linguistic conflicts, and is far from the main areas of international tension. Democracy in Latin America was supported by a favorable international climate fostered since the 1970s, yet the advantages of democracy are reduced by the weakness of institutions. But electoral systems in Latin America have expanded and shown resilience after ending chronic inflation in recent decades, despite the weakening of political parties - a worldwide trend - and the mediocrity of political leadership.
