This chapter examines the findings of all the authors in the volume by focusing on the question of the conditions for success of civil society democracy protection organisations. It attempts to answer the following questions: Is it primarily the qualities of the actors that explain the establishment and longevity of an organisation? Or do such actors owe their success primarily to party-political patronage or state support? What role do socio-cultural conditions play, especially the perception of threats and the way of dealing with them? Since the conditions for success at the micro (actors), meso (competitiveness of actors and opportunity structures), and macro levels (social, political, economic, and cultural framework conditions) are manifold and interwoven, no simple, generalisable answer to these questions can be given.
