Democracy in Peril: We Will Miss It When It's Gone

SPI 496

Info tab content
Democracy may not exist, but we will miss it when it's gone. The course will examine countries that are ostensibly democracies, but where institutions and the way governments behave, as well as the way in which money corrupts, all indicate a backsliding in democratic norms. The countries will include: the US; UK; Brazil; South Africa; Turkey; Israel; India; 3 inside the EU: Hungary, Poland & Romania. There will also be an examination of what can be done to strengthen institutions and fulfill the meaning of the words DEMOS (people) and KRATOS (rule or hold power).
