The book interrogates the relationship between democracy and development and how underdevelopment prevents citizens from participating in democracy. Section One is a collection of expertsí writing on key issues such as the single-party state; development policy; poverty, inequality and growth; the institutions of governance; the public service; and the role of civil society. Section Two, Idasaís Democracy Index 2010, releases Idasaís findings on Participation, Elections, Accountability, Political Freedom, Human Dignity and Democracy. The third in Idasaís Democracy Index series, this book argues that democracy needs economic development along with an embedded system of institutions, supported by active citizens and a vibrant political culture.
