The article wants to bridge the gap between Comparative Politics and International Relations by recourse to the nearly forgotten Latin-American dependency theories. To do this, first of all the deficits of Western democratization research with respect to external factors of autocratization and democratization processes will be highlighted. Then, linking the structural analysis of dependency theory with the neorealist approach in International Relations, the article develops an interference model that will be used to analyse the political developments in postcolonial areas since the Second World War. As a result, the article presents an explanation of the wave-like character of autocratization and democratization as an alternative to Western research into political transformation.
