Huntington has dubbed the "third wave" of democratization has seen more than 60 countries experience democratic transitions since 1974.While these countries have succeeded in bringing down authoritarian regimes and replacing them with freely elected governments, few of them can as yet be considered stable democracies.Over the last quarter of the century, the transitional paradigm (or the approach of the transition) has been a dominant paradigm that has greatly influenced different studies on democratization.
