    Presidential Term Limits in Africa and Latin America: Contested but Resilient

    Term limits are the key instrument for limiting presidential power, but in practice this tool has not always been effective. In Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa, the limits have been repeatedly abolished – an indicator of democratic backlash.

    Ineffective Sanctions? External Sanctions and the Persistence of Autocratic Regimes

    Despite various and often long-lasting international sanctions, numerous autocratic regimes such as Iran, Cuba, North Korea, Myanmar and Zimbabwe have proven to be extremely persistent. This project analyses the connection between external sanctions and persistence, taking into account especially regime-specific characteristics. With its nested research design the project closes the gap between highly aggregated quantitative analyses and individual case studies.
