La reconfiguration des structures de pouvoir en Algérie. Entre le national et l'international


  • Francesco Cavatorta


Processes of domestic political change, whether leading to democratisation or to authoritarian reconfiguration, are usually understood only through domestic variables and factors. Building on the literature on the linkages between external and internal dynamics that affect states in the economic domain due to globalisation, this articles postulates that political developments do not occur in a vacuum and that external variables are crucial in explaining domestic outcomes. Through the construction of an open model of democratisation, the article examines political change in Algeria over the last three decades and concludes that without taking into account the multiple channels of influence that exists between the “domestic” and the “international” it is impossible to explain Algeria’s political and economic developments.
