The numbers of legislation in democratic transitions

The numbers of legislative processes are, usually, less impressive in the experience of developing countries. However, they are not any less important. The quantity of legislation and other normative acts are evidence of the stability of successive political cycles. Over the years, these numbers are a relevant indicator of the sucess of political, one would hope, democratic transitions. The processes of Succesion of States opened by the decolonization of portuguese speaking countries, in Africa and Asia, are an interesting example of these trends over the last almost fifty years.
