Is Democracy in Danger?

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Warning signs are on the rise for democracies all over the world: in Europe, in Central and South America and even here in the United States. While revolution or a military coup is often the death knell for democracy, according to Harvard University’s Daniel Ziblatt, democratic political systems can also simply wither away through the slow and steady weakening of key institutions and the erosion of political norms. Today, there are a growing number of countries where judicial independence, free and fair elections and a free press are being challenged. Which nations may be at greatest risk for authoritarianism? Is the world's oldest democracy really in danger? Ziblatt will discuss how democratic institutions are being systematically undermined by elected leaders, and what can be done about it.
Daniel Ziblatt is the Eaton Professor of the Science of Government at Harvard University. He recently published “How Democracies Die,” co-authored by Steven Levitsky, Professor of Government at Harvard University.
