surviving in energy in addition to the propensity with which their leaders are punished after a regime transition. therefore, the effect of overseas strain varies throughout autocratic regime kinds. extra, the authors convey that once overseas coercion destabilizes an autocracy, this doesn't continuously result in democratic
regime swap simply because diverse regimes breakdown in distinctive methods. whereas democratization is usually equated with the death of autocratic rule, it's only one attainable consequence after an autocratic regime collapses. again and again, rather than democratization, externally-induced regime cave in signifies that a brand new dictatorship replaces the outdated one. This thought is demonstrated opposed to an intensive research of all dictatorships given that 1946, and historic situations which hint the causal procedure in cases where
foreign coverage instruments helped oust dictatorships.
