Authoritarian Consolidation

Göbel, Christian LU (2011) In European Political Science 10(2). p.176-190
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

Authoritarian consolidation is conceptualised as a deliberate state project to improve a regime's capabilities for governing society. It is hypothesised that the durability of an authoritarian regime increases to the extent that regime elites manage to substitute coercion for governing by organisation, regulation and the management of discourses. This provides them with a broader - and less costly - range of options to address social problems and regime challenges than merely intimidating or cracking down on opponents.
