Artikel, refereegranskad vetenskaplig
Sammanfattning (abstract):
This article investigates the medium-term effects of the UNTAC operation in Cambodia in 1992--93. "Democracy" was introduced as a ready-made package with little consideration for Cambodian tradition and history. Many critics have argued that it is not possible to establish democracy "from above". The article looks at the debate on democratization in the Third World and briefly reviews the nature and fate of implanted democracy in Cambodia. From this standpoint, it discusses what role the debate on "Asian Values" may have on the political system in Cambodia and the interrelationship between economic development and political change. It concludes that economic development and democracy are interdependent and that the holding of free and fair elections in 1998 is of the greatest importance.
