Example Question #1 : Democratization

Black South Africans gaining the right to vote after the collapse of Apartheid is an example of __________.

Possible Answers:

diversification

industrialization

marketization

democratization

capitalization

Correct answer:

democratization

Explanation:

In 1994, the system of Apartheid in South Africa, a legislatively created form of institutional racism that barred black South Africans from governmental and societal participation, was ended due to universal suffrage in a national election. This process, whereby all South Africans could vote, is a classic example of democratization, the movement of a nation's government to full democratic participation.
