Paper 1: Competitive Authoritarianism

Paper 1:  Competitive Authoritarianism
After a surge in the spread of democratic governments in the 2nd half of the 20th century, political scientists have noted a significant reduction in commitment to democracy, and a corresponding increase in ill-liberal regimes.  This is known as competitive authoritarianism.  For this paper, you will explore this phenomenon.  Please do the following:
  • Read the two provided articles.
  • Introduce the topic.  What is Competitive Authoritarianism (or electoral authoritarianism)?
  • Identify and discuss the elements of competitive authoritarianism.  Do the authors make any changes to their understanding of this concept from 2002 to 2020? 
  • Discuss how a nation state might resist the pull towards competitive authoritarianism.
  • All papers must have introductions and conclusions.  Tell the reader what you plan to do in your paper, and write as if the reader has no prior knowledge of the subject.
  • Citations to sources are required.
All papers must be typewritten, with reasonable font sizes and margins (12pt maximum; 1-inch margins). Unless otherwise stated, papers should be at least 4-5 pages in length, double-spaced, and submitted via eCampus.
Papers are required to include introductions and conclusions.  Assume when writing that the reader has no prior information on your topic -- then you will explain and fulfill each prompt completely.  Please review the grading rubric before submitting your paper.
Assignments are due as listed in the course schedule, by 01:59 pm.  Late papers will be accepted for half-credit. 
I highly recommend that you write your papers on a separate word processing program, and then upload to eCampus, rather than composing directly on eCampus.  Technology has a way of causing problems when you least need them!  Additionally, if eCampus is down when a paper is due, all you need to do is email the document to me (   Please submit in one of the following file formats (.doc, .docx, .odt., .pdf, .rtf).  I cannot accept Google Docs links or PAGES files.

Where necessary, others work must be appropriately cited.  Plagiarism is unacceptable and will result in a zero.  Please review the Academic Integrity Tutorial and complete the Academic Integrity Quiz below to ensure compliance with college policies.
