La Théorie de la Modernisation : un Examen Empirique en Afrique

Joseph Keneck Massil

This paper empirically tests the theory of modernization based on a sample of developing countries in Africa. It provides, for the first time, an empirical validation of four determinants of democracy according to the modernization theory (education, wealth, urbanization and industrialization). We use three estimation techniques (pooled OLS, LSDVC and GMM) and find reliable results which suggest that the modernization theory does not explain the negative dynamic of democracy in Africa.
