1. Chinchilla Adell, Monica. Liberalizing electoral outcome in Sub-Saharan Africa after the Cold War. Analysis of factors affecting the process through fs/QCA approach.

Degree: 2017, Leiden University

Elections are considered a powerful mean to drive political change, as well as a necessary condition for democratic consolidation. For that matter, this study focuses on legislative elections in ten Francophone countries taking place from 1990 to 2010. The main purpose is to analyse the importance of different factors affecting the process of liberalizing electoral outcome. For this purpose, a fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis is conducted, which makes use of qualitative and case-study analysis. As a result, this study shows that some variables like high political mobilization increase the likelihood of liberalizing electoral outcome. However, others like high levels of corruption and weakness of opposition decrease it or are considered irrelevant. As a conclusion, elections and factors affecting them must be further studied, as results can provide relevant information for policy recommendation and implementation. Advisors/Committee Members: van der Maat, Eelco (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: liberalizing electoral outcome; elections; fs/QCA; Francophone; Sub-Saharan Africa; legislative.
