Making the transition to democracy

Written by Alina Rocha Menocal

At the A4ID Governance Knowledge Group session on 21 March 2012, Alina Rocha Menocal, Research Fellow at theOverseas Development Institute in the Politics Governance Programme, examined the linkages between democracy and development and considered the particular challenges that post-conflict and fragile states face in consolidating democracy.

Holly Ruthrauff, Senior Electoral Advisor at the Electoral Reform International Services (ERIS) focused on Tunisia and considered the institutional and legal framework that must be put in place for the electoral agenda to remain on track, including the external assistance that can support the transition to democracy.
