Global Challenges to Democracy: Perspectives from Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America

Friday, October 2, 2020 at 11:00am to 12:00pm

Virtual Event

Over the past decade, democracy has been in retreat in a large number of countries in different regions, at least partially reversing the wave of democratization that swept across much of the world in the late 20th century.  This webinar explores patterns of "democratic backsliding" in different world regions and their implications for democratic rule and its political resiliency in the face of autocratic challenges.

Panel: Valerie Bunce, Tom Pepinsky, Rachel Riedl, and Kenneth Roberts

Co-sponsored by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, Latin American Studies Program,   Institute for African Development, Institute for European Studies, and Southeast Asia Program.
