Hybrid regimes in Central and Eastern Europe and East and Southeast Asia: Parties, political leaders and citizens

Much has been written on the failures of progress in countries with hybrid political regimes. While acknowledging some of the major hurdles and setbacks, this workshop intends to focus on the successes and achievements of democratization. The workshop will build on the significant work of Jean Blondel & Takashi Inoguchi (2006) in Political Cultures in Asia and Europe, which investigates public attitudes towards political culture in Western Europe and East and Southeast Asia.

While the persistence of authoritarianism is real, more research is needed on the linkages between parties, leaders and citizens. In looking at specific cases drawing on findings from surveys, elite interviews and content or media analysis, this workshop seeks to explore whether there are any commonalities between Central and Eastern Europe and East and Southeast Asia in our understandings of democratization.
