by Greg Mills, Olusegun Obasanjo, Tendai Biti, Jeffrey Ira Herbst Democracy Works explores how we can learn to nurture and deepen democracy in Africa to ensure economic growth and political stability. It identifies a 'democratic playbook' to meet the threats to free and fair elections. But substantive democracy demands more than simply regular polls. Democracy is fundamentally about the inner working of institutions, the rule of law, separation of powers, checks and balances, and leadership in government and civil society, as much as it is about values and the welfare and well-being of its citizens. It also demands that local leadership has a plan for the country beyond simply winning the popular vote. Democracy Works is directed toward leaders and citizens who want to address the extreme demographic and other challenges that Africa faces.
