    A process of the prevailing of democratic institutions and processes in a polity. The collapse of non-democratic systems often precedes and is an integral part of the process. Moreover, the consolidation of democratic institutions requires the development of civic culture that supports the working of democratic institutions.

While the playing field remains far from even in sub-Saharan African countries and South-East Asia, these are in fact, where the greatest improvements have taken place over the past 10 years.
