Notre Dame: University of Notre Dame Press, 2003. Caroline Beer makes an important contribution to this approach to Mexican democratization by examining state-level electoral competition in the 1990s and its impact on institutional development, particularly of state legislatures, and on political recruitment, especially of gubernatorial candidates. She argues that democratization resulted from a complex interplay between opposition victories in subnational elections and important democratic advances in the national political arena (pp. 9–10).

These two countries had a strongly institutionalized legislature, and a series of constitutional restrictions and historically embedded practices, long before their authoritarian governments. These institutions and practices reemerged after democratization and contributed to put limits to the way presidents have exercised power (O’Donnell, 1994, . 4).

Citizens in these countries face institutional obstacles to civil and political equality to a degree that might seem grotesque to a person living in a liberal democracy. Moreover, a number of these citizens (at times the majority) experience the effects of extreme social inequality, which undermines a basic premise of democracy: individual agency.

Series 2017:42 the varieties of democracy institute . Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) is a new approach to the conceptualization and measurement of democracy. It is co-hosted by the University of Gothenburg and University of Notre Dame. A shrinking economy has negative effects on democracy and a constantly shrinking economy might be a disaster for sustaining democracy. To control for the effect of electoral systems, social cleavages, and other conditions that may influence the number of parties gaining seats in congress, we incorporate the effective number of parties in the legislature (Laakso and Taagepera 1979).

This volume offers the definitive account of the life and labors of Edward Sorin, founder of the University of Notre Dame. Born in the west of France in 1814, Sorin was ordained in 1838 and joined the newly founded Congregation of Holy Cross shortly thereafter. In 1841, Father Sorin, along with six Holy Cross brothers, was sent to establish a mission in Indiana. After a year's service in the Vincennes diocese's fledgling parochial schools, Sorin was offered a tract of land in the diocese's northern-most section - on the condition that a college be situated there. Father Sorin and his companions arrived at the lakeside property, located near the south bend of the St. Joseph River, in November 1842. The next year, the state of Indiana granted a charter to what Sorin proudly and reverently called the University of Notre Dame du Lac. In its early days, Father Sorin's "university" was composed of a few log shacks and a handful of half-educated brothers, only a few of whom could speak English. There was no money and hardly any students. Edward Sorin is a history of the man who overcame great odds to found and grow one of the world's premier Catholic institutions of higher learning.
