Asia has varying experiences of democracy. India is the world's largest democracy whilst its neighbour, China, is not. Many other states in Asia hold competitive elections but in many different ways the institutionalisation and quality of their democracy is weak and democracy cannot be said to be consolidated in these countries.
Members of IAPS have conducted research projects on different aspects of democracy and are interested in supervising students working on a range of topics in this area. These include (but are not limited to) the role of social media in newly democratising countries, how to measure and understand democracy, the relationship between democracy and the recognition of minority rights, the role of technology in elections, the role of political parties in aggregating preferences, civil society and democracy.
Specific areas of research falling within this theme include:
