The Effect of International Free Trade in Democratic Transformation: A Theoretical Study of the Internal and External Factors.

Auther : Radwan Mahmoud Almajali

The goal of this research is to investigate the effect of international free trade in democratic transformation, and to offer a theoretical study of the internal and ex-ternal factors involved therein. This qualitative study seeks to define both conceptual and theoretical frameworks. It also discusses the internal and external environmental factors of the political system so as to determine the nature of the relationship between them.
The study was conducted at a time when varied international experiences have come to recognize that every political system has its own particularity which differs in structure and in political, economic and social set up from other systems. This recognition makes it difficult to draw generalizations that assume the presence of a positive relationship be-tween free-trade and democratic transformation. Furthermore, the level of analysis of both concepts necessitates an examination of the nature of these structures, and of the vital roles and function of the political system and its ability for adaptation.
The findings of this research indicate that free-trade is not always a prerequisite for achieving democratic transformation. There seems to be conditions and pre-requisites for democratic transformation that are greater in importance than free trade. In fact, free trade has not contributed much to economic and political development; rather it has created a state of instability within the political, economic and social structures of many countries.
Keywords: Free trade, Democratization, Development, Political economy, Political stability, Political conditionality.
