The Future of Democracy


Thirty years ago, it seemed that Liberal Democracy was on the march. The Berlin Wall had fallen, the Soviet Union had collapsed and new democracies were emerging throughout the world. Recent years have brought more sobering events and today, liberal democracy faces external challenges on many fronts, shaking the International Rules Based System to its very foundations. Our experts share their insights into the Geopolitical ramifications of these major shifts and the outlook for the future.
