The Centre for Studies in Democratisation (CSD) was established at the University of Warwick in 1992 in response to a growing interest in the study of democracy at a theoretical and empirical level.
Democratisation has become a central political theme and features now prominently on the foreign policy agenda of western countries.
CSD seeks to understand why, how and when democracies emerge, sustain or collapse and investigates the reasons why democratisation can sometimes be problematic. CSD is part of an extensive international network.
