The Dominican Republic: Becoming a One-Party State? by Carl Meacham
Is democracy in danger in the Dominican Republic? Is the country headed toward sustained one-party rule? In an effort to understand the state of Dominican democracy and rule of law, CSIS Americas Program director Carl Meacham led a six-month initiative to answer these questions. This report, which details the project's findings, pays particular attention to alleged growing levels of corruption within the government and the independence-and effectiveness-of the country's judiciary, as well as implications for the Dominican Republic's relations with the United States.
