This study focuses on the process of democratization/de-democratization in Southern Africa by looking at the level at which democracies institutionalized democratic principles. Presently indications point towards non-institutionalization of democratic principles or procedures in the Southern African region. In determining whether democratic structures are in place or not, indicators have been referred to. These indicators are drawn in to categorize democracies as noninstitutionalized or institutionalized ones. This study also points out that one party dominance is a trend in the Southern African region. Although one party domination is rife in the Southern African region it is not the only factor that retards positive political developments, but it is a common factor. In conclusion this study draws in the survival and revival strategies employed by different democratic regimes over the years. This part is particularly included in this study to inform views on the possible future political developments or route of political developments in the Southern African region.
