Democracy Today: An International Perspective

In 2007, the United Nations declared September 15 the International Day of Democracy. What is the state of democracy in the world today? Who are the advocates of democracy and how do they make their voices known in ballot boxes, in street demonstrations and via social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook? Can democracy find root in societies dominated by dictatorship, political exclusion, corruption and fanaticism? Join us this fall as we explore democracy’s challenges and its future, from the promise of the Arab Spring to the everyday witnesses of revolution, and in this way, examine our increasingly democratic world and learn what it really means to participate.
