    Contested Hybrid Democracy: Endorsing or Revisiting the Liberal Model in non-Western Countries

    IPSA Istanbul 2016

    Democracy has become a worldwide reference in terms of political organization and governance. While the universal character claimed by such a model has largely been theorized from a Western point of view, the variety of uses and appropriations from non-Western countries, including emerging States, remains unexamined. Disappointed with the results brought by the transition paradigm, the hybrid regimes literature tends to assess the unequal reception of the democratic model in non-Western countries. Nevertheless, the hybrid regimes analytical frame does not exhaust the question of the inner workings of these regimes, since its scientific referential remains based on Western theories and focuses on the uncompleted democratization processes and dynamics. This panel aims at switching the analytical frame towards the reception of the democratic model in non-Western countries through an assessment of uses and reappropriations of this model by political and social actors. Non-Western countries represent an interesting reflection ground for testing appropriation-reject dialectics regarding the Western democratic model. While this model directly inspires some of these countries (India, South Africa or Turkey), it has been rejected by other countries (China and Russia). Are there emerging models of democracy or counter-democracy models in non-Western countries ? We shall address these questions related to the unequal reception of the democratic model in non-Western countries.
