Towards a Conceptual Framework for Measuring Political Sustainability: A Comparative Analysis of Mozambique, Sweden, and the Usa.

Open Panel

The democracy indexes have measured the sustainability of the relationship between the State and Society, however, the scale between minority to majority power measurement does not score the power of the losers that ecologically struggle for recognition (ESR) in the face of relative deprivation, this can lead to false inference of sustainability measuring. This research aims to formulate a widespread framework that scores all forms of power involved in the political interaction to access political sustainability standards - (PSS). Data coded from the constitution's history of distinct case studies (Mozambique, the USA, and Sweden) were classified along Autocracy: 0-33%, Democracy: 34-66%, and Ecocracy: 67-100% framework, based on conceptual levels of separation of power through three categories: electoral, central, and local authorities. The score between the Autocratic to Democratic is biased by limiting its measure to the ideological power (IP) where one group dominates another, rather than, complemented to the Ecocratic score where the supreme power is vested in the ecological premises that is deliberate by scientific evidence of sustainability, and exercised directly by the technical agents. Correlation analyses of the three countries indicate that they are historically evolving in the same pathway toward a finite trajectory where the ESR neutralizes the IP (27%, 49%, and 66% respectively). To access PSS, the paper concludes that it is necessary to score the ESR for its power to infer the measuring.
