Reversing Freedom’s Decline

Political Science professor Larry Diamond highlights the troubling recent phenomena of democratic erosion in nation states – which has resulted in an increase in the number of authoritarian regimes worldwide. Diamond explains that democracy is not only tough to consolidate, but also highly vulnerable to regressions and failures. He attributes such breakdowns to bad governance, weak institutions, and a generalized lack of trust. In order to protect democracy around the world, Diamond emphasizes that we must fight a war against corruption, increase support for civil society, and demand the right to information and accountability.
