Democratization in South Asia: Lessons from American Institutions

In this study, Chowdhury (Chittagong U., Bangladesh) looks at the democratization process in developing countries in South Asia. The focus is on political sectors such as parties, leaders, and parliaments. The author concludes by suggesting the adoption in South Asian countries of some American political institutions (such as public hearings in the legislative and policy-making process) to facilitate the democratization process.
