  1. ". . . members of precolonially centralized ethnic groups are more likely to hold autocratic values." (12)Chlouba, Vladimir - Early Statehood and Support for Autocratic Rule in Africa, 2021 - 2 Variables

    The authors of this article evaluate how the legacies of early statehood (i.e., precolonial centralized ethnic groups) in Africa continue to impact democratic governance. They find a positive relationship between early states and support for autocratic rule, especially in former British colonies that were highly centralized prior to colonization. They suggest that the transmission of political and cultural norms play an important role in the support for autocracies.
