Democratic peace theory: Are democratic decision-making processes more likely to produce peace?

  • Democratic decision-making processes are more likely to produce peace

    Because in democratic societies people feel they are more important in society it is less likely that violent events like civil wars and riots will take place.It is more likely that they will use the democratic process to address their grievances therefore avoiding various forms of violent solutions that disturb the peace.

  • Democratic processes lead to peace

    People in a democracy lead to peace in the same way that any other government's leader does: by wanting it. A democracy (historically) is less likely to initiate full scale war largely because the people of the country all, individually, bear the cost. In contrast, the leaders of more autocratic forms of government can far more easily go to war on a whim, and are far less likely to have to feel its effects personally.
