TOPPI, Hernán Pablo. Guillermo O'Donnell and his contribution to the development of democracy in Latin America since the third wave of democratization. Rev. IUS [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.42, pp.9-28. ISSN 1870-2147.

Guillermo O'Donnell has been a Theoretician of Democracy. His research has become indispensable at the time of the study of democracy in Latin America. He demonstrated the particularities of the region's democracies and the limitations that traditional definitions had for it. This study analyzes selected books and essays by O'Donnell from the stage that began with the third wave of Democratization and extended to the last research agenda addressed by the author. We will seek to identify not only the main points of his theory, but also the challenges that emerged from it for the development of Emerging Democracies: from the macro to the micro, from the first to the second transition from the Regime to the Democratic State.

Palavras-chave : Guillermo O'Donnell; theory; democracy; Latin America; challenges.
