This month the Journal of Democracy celebrates its 25th anniversary with the publication of a special issue featuring some of the world’s leading experts on democracy, including Francis Fukuyama, Robert Kagan, Thomas Carothers, and Larry Diamond.
They explore a question that today is at the forefront of concern among policy makers and scholars alike: “Is Democracy in Decline?”
The issue is on the stands now and fully available (with a subscription) on Project Muse. And we have three free essays for you right here:
- Marc F. Plattner, “Is Democracy in Decline?“
- Steven Levitsky and Lucan Way, “The Myth of the Democratic Recession“
- Larry Diamond, “Facing Up to the Democratic Recession“
