surviving in strength in addition to the propensity with which their leaders are punished after a regime transition. accordingly, the impact of overseas strain varies throughout autocratic regime forms. extra, the authors exhibit that once international coercion destabilizes an autocracy, this doesn't regularly result in democratic
regime swap simply because assorted regimes breakdown in targeted methods. whereas democratization is usually equated with the loss of life of autocratic rule, it is only one attainable end result after an autocratic regime collapses. again and again, rather than democratization, externally-induced regime cave in implies that a brand new dictatorship replaces the outdated one. This conception is verified opposed to an in depth research of all dictatorships considering the fact that 1946, and old situations which hint the causal procedure in cases where
foreign coverage instruments helped oust dictatorships.
