Example text

There is a danger of losing a sense of the big questions that the numerous technical and institutional programs and measures collectively try to answer. With careful attention to strategies and modes of operation, we need to embark on this conceptual shift toward democratic transformation as an achievement of societies, without diluting it. Only when sharp contours are defined can we derive effective strategies. But promoting democratic transformation is first and foremost about opening a space in which citizens can develop a home-grown agenda and about accepting the fact that societies will develop their own creative paths of transition.

The sense of powerlessness is waning, and it is widely recognized that the change in peoples’ minds is a key driver of democratic transition, as has been witnessed over the past 30 years, first in southern Europe, then in Latin America and in Eastern and Central Europe. What Societies Fear As unhappy as societies are with their governments, they seek to protect state institutions and the stability of the political system. Scenes of instability in their immediate environment act as a deterrent against fostering abrupt change and shape the attitudes of opposition forces.

In a surplus labor environment, the incentives for incumbents in the formal sector do not include enthusiasm for reforms that create extra competition from either the traditional or the other informal sectors. It seems to us that it is therefore often politically very difficult to reform, in a simple way, the labor market so as to expand access. And therefore, we suggest experimenting with a separate track, a different route for people who are, in many countries, trapped or cut off from the growing and more modern sectors.
