When We Classify a Country as a Democracy

Choose a country located outside Western Europe or North America that regularly holds legislative elections. Comment on whether this country should be classified as a democracy or not.

Support your argument with external research about the country you have selected. You must show a good understanding of the country in question. It does not matter what you argue (meaning, what opinions you express); only how well you can build/support the arguments you make. Nobody will be penalized for having the “wrong” opinion (there is no such thing). The only truly “wrong” argument is the one you are not able to support with logic/reasoning and evidence/facts. You are expected to provide proper citations for every book, every journal article, and every news story you use in your think pieces.
