About the product

Democracy is the political dimension of human development. In Latin America and the Caribbean, democratic governance has been the subject of extensive debate. This publication offers an example of the type of work that has served as the basis for much of this debate. Its discussion centres around social conditions for democracy; democratic governance and the social condition in the Anglophone Caribbean; democratic governability in Latin America; ethics, culture and the citizenship; reform of the justice sector; decentralization; and legislative powers and the goals of democracy, economic efficiency and social equality.
