L’economia ed il sostegno democratico in Europa
AbstractL’economia ed il sostegno democratico in Europa (by Vincenzo Memoli) - ABSTRACT: Many theories attempt to explain democratic support trend, but economic perspectives, if we consider both consolidated democracies than those ‘in nuce’, appears to be top flight. In fact, whereas economic trend increase, democracy support turns to be strengthened (Dalton 2005). In this study, on the base of Eurostat and European World Values Survey Integrated’ (1999-2002) data, the conceptual dimensions of democracy support in twenty four consolidated UE democracies are analyzed. Adopting Easton’s (1965; 1975) theoretical approach the impact that economic factors produce on democracy support dimensions has been defined. The principal results show that i) democracy support analysis should be based on the whole range of the conceptual dimensions of democracy support, ii) the economic perspective allows us to explain specific support namely, confidence in institutions, support for political authorities and democratic principles- but not diffuse support that is, political community support.
