This Concept Map is intended to provide a useful snapshot of the key concepts in the area of democratic decay. It does not cover all concepts in the Concept Index, but should help users to navigate the Index.

It also should be emphasised that the concepts below are mildly caricatured: concepts such as 'autocratic legalism' and 'constitutional retrogression' clearly do not focus exclusively on executives, but these are their primary focus. Similarly, concepts such as 'democratic deconsolidation' and 'constitutional rot' do not ignore executives, but their analytical scope tends to focus on the wider democratic system as a whole.
