  • Populism and the Decline of Social Democracy
    • Abstract: Across Europe, traditional parties of the left seem to be in terminal decline. In Western Europe, support for social-democratic and socialist parties sank to insignificance in the 2017 French and Dutch elections. In the 2018 German parliamentary elections, the once-mighty Social Democratic Party (SPD) received its lowest vote share since the end of the Weimar Republic, and in Scandinavia, long the redoubt of social democracy, center-left parties struggle to maintain 25 to 30 percent of the vote. The situation in Central and Eastern Europe is even grimmer. In Hungary, the Socialist Party (MSzP), initially one of the strongest post-transition parties, garnered only 12 percent of the vote in April 2018 elections for ... Read More

  • Polarization versus Democracy
    • Abstract: When can we realistically expect ordinary people to check the authoritarian ambitions of elected politicians' An answer to this question is key to understanding the most prominent development in the dynamic of democratic survival since the end of the Cold War: the subversion of democracy by democratically elected incumbents and its emergence as the most common form of democratic breakdown.The Figure on page 22 summarizes this troubling trend. At five-year intervals, it shows the percentage of executive takeovers—my shorthand for incumbent-driven subversions of democracy—as a share of democratic breakdowns over the period 1973–2018. I constructed this plot by first identifying all instances in which Freedom House ... Read More

  • Ukraine's Post-Maidan Struggles: The Rise of an "Outsider" President
    • Abstract: Correction: This article has been updated to correct an editorial error in the first sentence which listed the year of Ukraine’s recent presidential election as 2014. The correct year is 2019.The editors regret this error, which has been corrected in the text below. The original version of the article is available here. In April 2019, Ukraine's highly competitive presidential election delivered a resounding victory for a political newcomer. The winner, leading the March 31 first round with 30.2 percent of the vote and securing an overwhelming 73.2 percent in an April 21 runoff against incumbent Petro Poroshenko, was 41-year-old Volodymyr Zelensky—a comic actor and studio head who portrayed a ...

  • Ukraine's Post-Maidan Struggles: Free Speech in a Time of War
    • Abstract: Russia's invasion of Ukraine in 2014 jeopardized not only the country's territorial integrity but its democracy as well. After Russia's seizure of the Crimean peninsula and military incursion into the eastern Donbas region, the Ukrainian government made significant efforts to censor Russian-language media and suppress Soviet-era symbols and communist parties that have support in eastern Ukraine. Some of these efforts have been consistent with international principles defining the balance between free speech and security. Other measures, however, not only threatened the country's democracy but endangered its national security by alienating precisely those groups in the southeast that Russia's President Vladimir ...

  • Why Ballot Secrecy Still Matters
    • Abstract: Should voting require a trip to the polling station' In recent years, the options for casting one's ballot by mail or over the internet have received growing attention. In the United States, voters in Colorado, Oregon, and Washington now vote exclusively by mail, while nineteen other states have provisions to allow the exclusive use of postal voting in some elections or by specific counties. Momentum is building behind the idea of making remote voting the sole means of conducting elections.Yet as the use of postal voting has expanded, legislators, electoral specialists, and the U.S. public have shown little concern with securing the secrecy of the vote. This pattern is not unique to the United States: At a time ... Read More

  • Aspirations and Realities in Africa: Five Reflections
    • Abstract: It is now thirty years since strikes and demonstrations in Benin opened the way to a wave of democratic change across sub-Saharan Africa. Through the 1990s, military regimes and single-party states gave way to constitutional, multiparty electoral rule. Nearly a dozen countries, from Benin and Ghana to South Africa and Namibia, installed open, fair electoral systems with broad civil liberties. A greater number, including Madagascar, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Zambia, stopped short of embracing full competition, but still allowed more space for political participation and opposition.

  • Aspirations and Realities in Africa: Democratic Delivery Falls Short
    • Abstract: Early in 2019, hopes for free and fair elections in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) were dramatically dashed when brazen manipulation of the results in the presidential race paved the way for a declared, but widely questioned, winner. In Zambia, democratically elected president Edgar Lungu has harassed opposition leaders and contemplated going for a third term, in breach of the country's constitution. President John Magufuli of Tanzania has clamped down on the opposition, intensified media censorship, and imposed restrictions on civil society. In Senegal, one of Africa's celebrated democracies, President Macky Sall, who rode to power in 2012 with help from the youthful hiphop group Y'en a Marre and other ... Read More

  • Aspirations and Realities in Africa: Senegal's Vigorous but Constrained
           Election
    • Abstract: On 24 February 2019, Senegal's incumbent president Macky Sall of the Alliance for the Republic (APR) won reelection with a commanding 58 percent of the vote, avoiding the need for a runoff. His closest competitor, former prime minister Idrissa Seck of the Rewmi party, finished with just 21 percent. Campaigning was vigorous, and on election day the polls attracted a reported two-thirds of all registered voters in this country of sixteen million. Lively competition and strong participation by citizens and civil society groups have given Senegal a claim to be one of Africa's leading democracies, but every election also brings challenges that raise questions about this reputation.Senegal's political history is ...

  • Aspirations and Realities in Africa: Nigeria's Emerging Two-Party
           System'
    • Abstract: On 23 February 2019, Nigerians went to the polls to choose a president and all 109 senators and 360 representatives for the bicameral National Assembly. Two weeks later, the respective electorates of the country's 36 states also elected state legislatures and, in 29 states, state governors. Despite fire damage to stocks of electoral materials, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had insisted that the national elections would proceed as scheduled on February 16, only to announce a one-week postponement for logistical reasons a few hours before polls were due to open. In similar fashion, the state elections were delayed to March 9 instead of March 2. The delay went down badly. Since driving during ... Read More

  • Aspirations and Realities in Africa: The DRC's Electoral Sideshow
    • Abstract: Correction: Due to an editorial error, the original map on page 128 placed the border between the DRC’s Lualaba and Haut-Katanga provinces incorrectly. The editors regret this error, which has been corrected in the map here. The original version of the article is available here. On 30 December 2018, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) held a presidential election, but the real winner did not become president. Without releasing any figures other than the alleged national tally, the National Independent Electoral Commission (CENI) announced that Martin Fayulu—the opposition politician who by all available if unofficial evidence won the race—had lost to Félix Tshisekedi, the leader of an on-and-off ...

  • Aspirations and Realities in Africa: Ethiopia's Quiet Revolution
    • Abstract: Ethiopia, at 105 million people the second-largest country in Africa, took an important step away from its authoritarian past on 5 February 2019. That day, parliament adopted new and more liberal legislation on civil society groups to replace a decade-old, highly repressive law that had targeted the work of human-rights advocates and other defenders of a free society.1 This move—it would have been virtually unthinkable just a few years before—marked the first legislative achievement of the man at the center of the quiet revolution gripping the country, reform-minded prime minister Abiy Ahmed. A figure of almost frenetic ambition, the 42-year-old Abiy has moved fast since coming to power in April 2018, pressing ... Read More

  • Egyptian Youth's Digital Dissent
    • Abstract: In 1964, the French-Egyptian satirical writer Albert Cossery (1913–2008) penned a novel called La violence et la dérision, later translated into English as The Jokers.1 In it, he describes an imaginary yet familiar Middle Eastern country where a tyrannical regime rules with almost comical impunity. Not only is all dissent thwarted, but any sign of poverty or desperation is banned lest the country's image suffer. As the book opens, a police officer is beating a dummy that he has been fooled into thinking is a passively recalcitrant street beggar. The officer—a representative of the regime and its fearsome security apparatus—has been humiliated by a group of dissident pranksters who plot additional comedic events ... Read More

  • The Decay of The Central American Left
    • Abstract: The protests and repression that have wracked Nicaragua since April 2018 are replete with ironies, but also raise disturbing questions about the left in Central America. Given that intellectuals throughout the Americas and beyond took a keen interest in the region's convulsions in the 1980s, and that the region remains a locus of misery, it is urgent to explain the demise of those Central American political organizations that worked so hard for radical, progressive change. Beginning with 18 April 2018 demonstrations in several cities against pension changes that would have raised taxes and cut benefits, the Nicaraguan protests quickly swelled into a national insurrection against the regime of President Daniel ...

  • Are Strong Parties the Answer'
    • Abstract: Who, or what, is responsible for the crisis of liberal democracy today' Voters have expressed growing levels of dissatisfaction with their governments, culminating in the election of populist and illiberal leaders. This dissatisfaction is rooted in many trends—economic policies that have produced inequality and economic insecurity; the increased movement of people across borders; and shifts in international and supranational centers of power. Citizens report feeling that their governments are unable or unwilling to make decisions that benefit the public.Antipathy toward political parties is both a symptom and a cause of this broader democratic discontent. Party membership in Western Europe has been on the decline ... Read More

  • Election Watch
    • Abstract: Benin: In April 28 elections to the National Assembly, two parties aligned with President Patrice Talon won all 83 seats—47 for the Progressive Union and 36 for the Republican Bloc. In the lead-up to the election, all genuine opposition parties were barred from participating. In response, opposition leaders called on their supporters to boycott and to protest the election. The government cracked down on the protests, arresting activists and shutting down the internet ahead of the vote. In spite of the government's efforts to counter the boycott, only 23 percent of voters turned out, a sharp decline from 65 percent in the previous election.Comoros: In the March 24 presidential election, President Azali Assoumani of ...

  • Documents on Democracy
    • Abstract: On May 20, Volodymyr Zelensky was sworn in as president of Ukraine and delivered an inaugural address before the Ukrainian parliament, the Verkhovna Rada. (For more on Ukraine's election, see the article by Joanna Rohozinska and Vitaliy Shpak on pp. 33–47 above.) Excerpts from Zelensky's speech appear below:After my election victory, my six-year-old son said: "Dad, they say on TV that Zelensky is the President … So, it means that … I am … the President too'!" At the time, it sounded funny, but later I realized that it was true. Because each of us is the President. Not just the 73 percent who voted for me, but all 100 percent of Ukrainians. This is not just my victory, this is our common victory. And this is our ... Read More
