Abstract:

The world is changing dramatically. Despite this, threats to national and international security continue in various forms poverty, organized crime, drug use, terrorism violence, arms trafficking, disease, global warming, and ethnic, religious nationalist, separatist, political and economic conflicts. Nevertheless, democracy is spreading, and today many countries are called democratic. This paper describes several countries, which are very different because of their history, culture, religion, people, education, and wealth. But these countries also have something in common They are democratic. In each, however, the democratic system differs significantly from the others. For that reason, I have tried to analyze these differences in order to better understand how democracy functions or is understood in each case.
