We study empirically the role of education, age structure and other socioeconomic factors as a determinant of the transition to stable democratic regimes. Our findings suggest that educational improvements (in particular in primary education) and policies towards reducing
inequalities in educational attainment play a particularly important role as a catalyst of sustainable democratization processes. (authors' abstract)
