Topics in Policy Analysis (Half-Term): New Authoritarianism and the Challenge to Democracy

SPI 593Z

Info tab content
This seminar explores the forces driving the erosion of democratic norms, values and institutions and the concurrent surge in authoritarian rule of a new and more sophisticated type. We also explore democratic resilience, including strategies crafted and implemented by civil society actors and movements seeking to rejuvenate or even reinvent the democracy project. Students sharpen their thinking about the shifting global political landscape and explore the daunting challenges to advance democratic freedoms and fundamental human rights. Drawing on international case studies, this seminar provides a policy practitioner's perspective.
