Human Development and Democracy: A Political Culture Approach


Brazilian Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Democracy and Human Development
Castro will use a political culture approach to conduct a comparative study of patterns of valuing and supporting democratic institutions and their relation to human development in countries with differing democratic traditions. Unlike mainstream studies asserting that democracy increases citizens’ quality of life, his project argues the opposite: that democracy is only sustainable in the long term if citizens flourish.
