Dr. Ernesto Sagás and co-author Jacqueline Jiménez Polanco’s book Dominican Politics in the Twenty First Century: Continuity and Change will be published by Routledge in February 2023.

The collection examines the continuities and changes that have set the Dominican political system apart from its Latin American counterparts over the last couple of decades. Whereas traditional political parties have lost support throughout Latin America, and electoral systems have devolved into illiberal democracies, Dominican democracy remains flawed but vibrant with a popular embrace of party politics.
