Lessons from Democracies at Risk: A Global Perspective
March 17, 2022, 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
The United States is not the only country where democracy is vulnerable. The forces of polarization, populism, and autocracy have provoked deep conflict and democratic backsliding across the globe in recent years. Countries such as Venezuela, Turkey, Hungary, and Russia that once seemed to be on the road to democratization have reversed course, with often tragic and devastating consequences. How does the United States fit into this global pattern? What lessons does a global perspective hold for the challenges of democratic vulnerability in the United States? And what have been the most effective sources of resilience in the global struggle for democracy?
Please join us for a discussion featuring some of the nation’s leading experts on global democratic vulnerability and resilience and what it might mean for American democracy.
