However, students haven’t explored both the elements affecting skilled reliability or the degree to which these factors influence estimates of latent concepts.
Under what conditions do elections lead to democratization or conversely, sustain authoritarianism? State capability could also be a vital intervening variable affecting the democratizing power of elections in authoritarian regimes.

We study how financial crises have an effect on the likelihood of regime change brought about, partly or totally, by actors in the incumbent regime.
