Democracy Under Threat

Garry Kasparov
Eastern Europe and Central Asia

After the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, many intellectuals thought that liberal democracies would finally reign supreme.

While this anti-democratic trend is worrying, Kasparov reminds us that we should never tire in our defense of these universal values.
