Summary/Abstract: The article suggests the model of democratic consolidation which can give an opportunity for fledgling democracies which have successfully left totalitarian or authoritarian dictatorship. The searching of such a model or paradigm is important because only 27% of them have fully consolidated their democracies. The proposal defines the conditions of consolidation and institutional design needed to achieve this purpose. However, the core of analysis is devoted to how to counteract the main danger, namely democratic erosion of young democracies.
