Education and Political Democratization: Cross-national and Longitudinal Findings.
Benavot, Aaron
Comparative Education Review, v40 n4 p377-403 Nov 1996
Evaluates the relative importance of educational, economic, and cultural factors in supporting the emergence and stability of democracy. Data from over 100 countries on long-term changes in democracy, 1965-80 and 1980-88, support an institutional perspective that emphasizes the impact of elite higher education (as opposed to mass education and literacy) on political outcomes such as democratization.
