How International Events lead to Establishment and Maintenance of Regimes.
Non-democratic regimes including authoritarianism have provided insights into the
fundamentals of the works of non-democratic states or politics. Research on authoritarian
regimes indicates that there is a big reliance on assumptions about several legitimacies that are
systematic. Claim over a particular regime to its legitimacy is of significance since it explains the
meaning of the rule and its turn. However international events have their various ways of
maintaining and establishing their regimes to continue exiting. They are personalism, ideology,
foundational myth, and international engagement.
Authoritarian regimes often focus on the ruler to boost the appeal for both the
population and the elite. Through this, it helps the non-democratic states or regimes to boost
their periodization of leadership this is under the application of personalism (Margulis, 2020).
However, personalism entails some aspects according to Webber refers to it as charismatic
which is an important root of legitimacy. Moreover, personalism is based on claims which is a
mechanism that insists on the centrality of the ruler.
On the other hand, international events can maintain their regimes by having
international engagement. Whereby the autocrats use the engagement of international to
boost their narrative of legitimation although it is hard to be considered under systematic
research on the attempt of the authoritarian to obtain its legitimacy(Peters, 2017). However,
the disproportionate engagement of the regional organizations serves to offer strength to the
legitimized regimes especially those which are hardly drawn from domestic sources, particularly
on the legitimation. Hence the establishment of the non-democratic regimes is retained
through engaging in international legitimation.
Ideology as usual is the pillar in non-democratic regimes. Whereby authoritarianism
uses it to maintain its existence in international events. Ideology encompasses narratives under
the macro and micro claims other than communism. Ideological claims entail the sources of
religion and nationalism. An example of this is the post-independence regimes which rely on
the strength of nationalism which can be pronounced under the change of government.
Moreover, ideology has contributed majorly to the establishment and maintenance of nondemocratic regimes.
