    The wave of democracy that swept much of the Americas during the 1980s signaled a new era, as citizens in the hemisphere regained their fundamental political rights. During this period of profound change, NDI was proud to have worked with courageous democrats who organized the plebiscite campaign that ended military rule in Chile, helped consolidate civilian control of the militaries in Nicaragua and Argentina, and confronted regimes in Paraguay and Panama. Despite these historic advances, the challenges of governing remain daunting. Economic crisis and public apathy have exposed weaknesses in the political foundations of democracy in many countries and highlight the need to address the long-term challenges of making democracy work through governmental, legislative and political party reform. In Venezuela, NDI works to strengthen political parties and assist Venezuelans to organize an independent NGO network of volunteer election observers. In Peru, the Institute assists legislators with implementing key institutional reforms, while NDI's Civic Forum program helps Haitians understand their political rights and use this knowledge to solve problems in their communities. In Ecuador and Jamaica, NDI supports the efforts of local organizations that are mobilizing thousands of volunteer monitors, particularly young people, to protect the integrity of elections and to participate in politics. And in Cuba, NDI is helping to build international awareness and support for the Varela Project's efforts to promote peaceful political reform in Cuba.

    The Conceptual Foundations of Democratic Capitalism
    by Dr. Edward Younkins
    Professor of Accountancy and Business Administration at Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia and author of Capitalism and Commerce
    Democratic capitalism, the cornerstone of American society, is far more than an economic system: it is a dynamic complex of economic, political, moral-cultural, ideological, and institutional forces. This article provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts that inform American democratic capitalism, concepts that have evolved over centuries in such disciplines as philosophy, economics, law, history, political science and sociology. The survival of democratic capitalism may be in jeopardy unless we understand and appreciate its conceptual foundations.
    In addition, the nations of Eastern Europe are engaged in revolutionary programs of economic, political, and social reform moving them toward the combination of democracy and market economics. An understanding of the concepts described herein will help to make sense of these developments.
    The complex interaction among its various concepts would render a discrete analysis of democratic capitalism superficial. Thus, my approach is conceptual and stresses the complex, interrelated element of this politico-economic system.

    THE DEVELOPING WORLD NEEDS TO STRENGTHEN THE FOUNDATIONS OF DEMOCRACY AND GIVE SPECIAL EMPHASIS TO DEVELOPMENT - SHEKHAWAT The following is the full text of the address of the Vice President of India to the National Assembly of Seychelles: "I bring to you warm greetings, fraternal good wishes and best regards from the people of India, from the Members of the Indian Parliament, and from the Government of India. It is a great honour for me to be here amidst you and to address this august Assembly, the pillar of democracy of your beautiful country. I cannot express how fascinated I am by the unique beauty of this Paradise Island. Nature has been bountiful to your Country - as beautiful indeed as it has been in bestowing such rich diversity upon your land and its people. I have pleasantly learnt an Indian connection in the discovery of this Island of Mahe! It was from Pondicherry in India that in the year 1741, the French navigator, Lazare Picault had begun his voyage to Mauritius as destination when his keen eyes spotted this beautiful Island of Mahe. That is why I am sure our two countries will remain firmly connected forever!

    ... Return Home Democracy, Federalism, and Realism in Postwar Iraq by James A. Phillips
    Executive Memorandum #873
    The United States scored a decisive military victory in Iraq, but building a stable, democratic, pro-American Iraqi government will be more difficult than winning the war. To accomplish its postwar goals, the United States will have to overcome the resistance of hostile Iraqi political forces, referee the deadly factional struggles of bitter political rivals, and minimize the meddling of Syria and Iran, both of which seek to hijack Iraq's political future and drive out American influence. Building a stable democracy under these conditions will be a complex long-term challenge. The Bush Administration has wisely pledged to turn Iraq over to the Iraqis as soon as possible to minimize the risks of an anti-American backlash, but Iraq may not be ready for full-fledged democracy by the time U.S. troops withdraw over the next two to five years. The Bush Administration should patiently assist the Iraqis in laying the foundations for democracy in Iraq, but it should also avoid pressing for an overly ambitious rapid democratic transformation that could bring anti-democratic forces to power and/or destabilize Iraq. Avoid Pitfalls on the Path to Democracy
    Although Iraq, unlike Afghanistan, has considerable oil wealth, a well-educated population, a secular tradition, and a modern infrastructure, there are daunting political, cultural, and historical obstacles to building a stable democracy in Iraq. American troops, initially welcomed as liberators by many Iraqis, soon will become scapegoats for all of Iraq's problems. America's honeymoon period may already be ending in Iraq: Last week, tens of thousands of Iraqi Shiites on a pilgrimage in Karbala used their newly won political freedom to call for an Islamic state and the immediate withdrawal of American forces.

    Their idea of majority rule and selfgovernment became a symbol of democracy. Thetype of government they formed was called a democracy or democratic republic.
    The first government set up in the new world by European colonists was formed in a document written in 1620 by the Pilgrims. It was called the Mayflower Compact. Their idea of majority rule and self-government became a symbol of democracy When the American Revolutionary War ended over 150 years later, the 13 colonies received their independence from Great Britain. They joined together and became the United States of America. They were now free to form their own government and make their own laws. The type of government they formed was called a democracy or democratic republic . That meant that all free men would be able to vote for representatives to run the country and make laws that were for the good of all. Voting for representatives in elections would become part of being a good citizen of the new nation. Ideas like those expressed in the Declaration of Independence spread and grew in the new country. A belief in freedom is the heart of a democracy. Democracy gave men the feeling of "equality." When the British ruled the colonies only a few, the king and those he appointed, governed them. These rulers were usually from the rich upper-class. In the United States of America all free men would have the same rights and opportunities. Colonists from England, France, Holland, and other European countries had come to America for many different reasons. Many had come seeking religious freedom. In the United States they would be able to worship as they pleased without fearing arrest or punishment. Others came so that they might be able to own their own property. There would be many more opportunities in a free nation. Men and women from different countries were now citizens of the new nation. As citizens of the United States they would be free to express different ideas and opinions while working for a common goal.

Staff Muwatin’s Publications Opinions expressed by individual authors do not necessarily represent the position or opinion of Muwatin, The Palestinian Institute for the Study of Democracy ARABIC Muwatin's current program is focused on seven series of publications each with its own-targeted readership.
  • The "Research and Studies" series involves in-depth exploration of issues generated by the democratic process at the theoretical level, in addition to specific case studies.
  • The "Occasional Papers" series offers shorter research papers that will be oriented more to the analysis of particular issues.
  • The "Critical Interventions" series is partially based on the ongoing symposia series held by the Institute. It aims at initiating and encouraging debate on critical issues facing democratic transformation in the Palestinian and Arab contexts.
  • The "Foundations of Democracy" series is aimed at the university student and the general public and seeks to provide an extended treatment of both key democratic concepts and basic constituents of democratic systems. Seven books in the series have already been published.
  • The "Elements of Democracy" series is aimed at high school students in their junior and senior years, as well as the general public. The series aims to introduce basic principles of democracy in a systematic and clear manner thus leading to the understanding of such principles as the rule of law, the division of powers, citizenship etc. This series is linked to a series of workshops in which teachers from the public and private school systems participate who subsequently introduce these booklets into their schools.

    Home News Free GIS Instant Maps-Websites ... Contact Democratic Foundations: The future's best way to transfer wealth? By Mark Dowie < Back to Environmentalism in the 21st Century Source: Whole Earth Democratic Foundations: The future's best way to transfer wealth? By Mark Dowie The moral challenge facing organized philanthropy, now a growth industry in America, is how best to use surplus wealth in service to our civilization. Should the rich keep and invest it? Should we encourage them (through tax laws) to create new charities and foundations? Can we promote a religious revival that enjoins them to give it away? Or should we have our government confiscate and redistribute all inheritance? A timely economic expression of the last question might read something like this: What if all the personal wealth that is expected to transfer from one generation to another over the next twenty-five years or so, now estimated to be around $10 trillion, rather than being passed from rich to rich, as will almost certainly occur, was instead given directly and immediately to the neediest?

    The Calculus of Consent: Logical Foundations of Constitutional Democracy
    Written by James M. Buchanan Gordon Tullock
    Published by UMP (March 1962)
    ISBN 0472061003
    Price $22.95
    Customer Reviews Some reviewers comment that this book has "a conservative bias." Nothing could be further from the truth. This book is written in the great classical-liberal tradition that motivated the American revolution and the drafting of America's 1787 Constitution. Buchanan and Tullock saw themselves as putting into modern economic language the insights and wisdom of James Madison and Co. The book does indeed counsel skepticism of big government, and it is no great fan of unlimited democracy. But the authors come to this position because they understand that even democratic governments can be tyrannical and that a depoliticized society governed largely by private property rights promises peace, prosperity, and cultural flourishing. Few books on economics are as original and insightful as is The Calculus of Consent and it remains as fresh in 1999 as it was when first published in 1962. This is probably one of the most rewarding books anyone can read. If you care about government and what it does (or doesn't) do to (or for) you, read this book. It requires patience and concentration, but it's well worth the effort. The authors succeed in showing how it is wrong to assume that government has always the best of intentions. They put a human face on politics and explain with impressive reasoning why government and politics produce unreasonable outcomes. The explanatory power of this book is unmatched. Anyone who cares about what this country is and what it could be should read it. Despite what you may have heard, their agenda is not conservative, it is individualistic, treating each person with dignity. The outcomes may surprise you, but you can't help but be moved by the force of their logic.
