Conditions of Democracy and Limits of Democratization. Factors of Regime Changes in Post-Communist Countries: an Experience of Comparative and Multidimensional Statistical Analysis


An attempt has been realized in the article to apply qualitative and quantitative methods of comparative analysis for revealing key factors influencing the trajectories and the results of regime changes in post-Communist countries. The authors investigate into the question of which of these factors and in what situations are the most significant for explaining the character and the results of post-Communist regime transformations.
