A case study of the democracy in Poland between 2008-2018 (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay has covered the democratic development in Poland between 2008 and 2018. The purpose of this essay is to test and see if an existing democracy theory can explain the democratic development in Poland. The questions that I will be answering are; 

  1. Is Poland an embedded or defect democracy? 
  2. Can Merkel’s theory about embedded and defect democracy explain the development in Poland? 

The theory that is used and will be tested is Wolfgang Merkel’s theory about embedded and defect democracy. This theory will be carried out in the same way as Matthijs Bogaards and his addition of a diffusely defect democracy. Bogaards’ addition of diffusely defect democracy complements Markel’s theory with another definition of a defect democracy combining several of Merkel´s definitions of defect democracies.  This is a qualitative essay with a qualitative method. The theory will be in the form of both dimensions and definitions. The result is that Poland shows signs of a defect democracy, but Merkel’s theory about defect democracy, and carried out according to Bogaards, cannot totally explain the development in Poland. The conclusions are that Poland should be seen as a diffusely defect democracy and that Merkel’s theory cannot explain the democratic development in Poland.
