Abstract:

Many scholars posit that the globalization of national ecnomies has weakened states' control over their societies among developing countries, thus rendering support to their improved civil liberties. Some scholars, such as Samuel Huntington, however, would argue that states from different "civilizational" groups are so fundamentally different that they react differently toward a similar change, such as the internationalization of their conomies or democratization of their societies. This paper empirically test the validity of this "Clash of Civilizations" thesis. More specifically, it examines whether Confucian and Islamic states react differently from the rest of the world toward the increased internationalization of their economy, thus allowing less improvements in their civil liberties.
