This chapter summarizes the book’s findings and reflects on their implications for how scholars and policy makers understand IOs, democratic transitions, and the relationship between the two. The chapter describes how this study speaks to research on leaders credibly committing to domestic reforms, the origins of democratization, and the development of democratic institutions. The chapter then considers implications of this study for current policy, using the recent crisis in Ukraine to explore how established democracies can encourage democratizing states to form new IOs and provide material support to those newly created IOs.
