  • Confronting Authoritarianism
    • Abstract: Let me begin with a passage from a novel about a Soviet-style dictatorship that was written in German, but which appeared first in English. The translation was a consequence of the original manuscript going missing during the writer's escape from Paris in May 1940, just before the Nazi occupation of France.Our Press and our schools cultivate Chauvinism, militarism, dogmatism, conformism and ignorance. The arbitrary power of the Government is unlimited, and unexampled in history; freedom of the Press, of opinion and of movement are as thoroughly exterminated as though the proclamation of the Rights of Man had never been. We have built up the most gigantic police apparatus, with informers made a national institution ... Read More

  • Weaponizing Interpol
    • Abstract: In November 2018, the 87th General Assembly of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol), meeting in Dubai, held a vote to choose the organization's new president. The office's previous occupant, China's former public-security vice-minister Meng Hongwei, had resigned the month before under unusual circumstances. Upon heading back to China for a visit in late September, he had mysteriously dropped out of contact. On October 7, a Chinese Communist Party disciplinary body confirmed that the head of the world's leading transnational policing organization was in custody and under investigation. He was the latest to fall victim to the sweeping anticorruption campaign launched in 2012 by President Xi ... Read More

  • 30 Years After Tiananmen
    • Abstract: As we approach the thirtieth anniversary of the events of 4 June 1989, they remain seared in the memory of democrats in China and around the world. On that day the government of the People's Republic of China violently crushed the prodemocracy protesters who had been occupying Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing. More than a thousand civilians were killed in what has come to be called the Tiananmen Massacre, and many of the surviving protesters were arrested and imprisoned.Many people think of 1989 primarily as the annus mirabilis that witnessed the demise of communism in Central and Eastern Europe. Precisely on June 4 in that year, Poland's Solidarity movement defeated the Communists in the first nearly free ... Read More

  • 30 Years After Tiananmen: The Meaning of June 4th
    • Abstract: In assessing the historical significance of 4 June 1989, it is useful to consider a hypothetical question: If the democracy movement that brought the protesters out onto Tiananmen Square that day had succeeded, what would China look like today' Answering this question requires first establishing what "success" would have meant for the movement's participants. There are a number of misconceptions on this point, one of which underlies a question often asked by the skeptical: "If you had taken power, would you have been better than the Communist Party'" In fact, this challenge rests on a false premise. The students who took to the streets in 1989 never mentioned replacing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) or proposed ... Read More

  • 30 Years After Tiananmen: Memory in the Era of Xi Jinping
    • Abstract: No event in its modern history haunts the People's Republic of China (PRC) as deeply as the protest movement that swept the country during the spring of 1989. Around the world, millions witnessed a tragedy unfold that is now indelibly linked to the square that was its focal point, establishing Tiananmen as a metonym for a government's punitive war against a remonstrating citizenry.1 Not long after crushing the protests as a "counterrevolutionary rebellion," the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) imposed a cone of silence around the entire affair so complete that even to mention it is to touch the third rail of Chinese politics.2Thirty years on, media and online references to the protests and their suppression are still ...

  • 30 Years After Tiananmen: The Young and the Restless
    • Abstract: Seventy years after its revolutionary birth and thirty years since its near-death experience in Tiananmen Square, the People's Republic of China is seen by most specialists as an unalterable fact. Yet this assumption, like those made in 1987 when the Soviet Union marked the seventieth anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, is wrong. Communist China is ripe for a transition to democracy. That transition may fail, as happened in post-Soviet Russia. But the likelihood of an attempt is now as great as it was when the last major push toward democratization rocked the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime in 1989, and the conditions for success are better than they were either in China during the Tiananmen Square ...

  • 30 Years After Tiananmen: Dissent Is Not Dead
    • Abstract: Thirty years ago, tens of thousands of Chinese university students descended on Beijing's Tiananmen Square—a landmark of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) power—to advocate democracy and transparency. More than a million Chinese citizens eventually demonstrated peacefully over a period of six weeks. While the charismatic students in Beijing claimed the international spotlight, Chinese citizens from all walks of life, in both cities and rural areas, also took to the streets to call for political and economic reform.In his profound essay, dissident and historian Wang Dan reminds us what, precisely, these citizens were asking for. They wanted Chinese history to be accurately recounted and Chinese people to enjoy the basic ... Read More

  • 30 Years After Tiananmen: Hong Kong Remembers
    • Abstract: Innocent university students chat easily inside the tents at Tiananmen Square. Intellectuals openly share their dreams for China's future. Young boys and girls suffer selflessly in hunger strikes. Thousands of citizens raise banners to show their support. Faceless soldiers march ruthlessly into Beijing. A fearless man plants himself steadfastly before a file of tanks. Bloody bodies lie inertly in the streets.These are the collective memories burned into the minds of most Hong Kong people over forty. Those who are younger can learn about what happened thirty years ago in the capital of China if they wish, as there is still a free flow of information in Hong Kong. The June 4 vigil to commemorate those who died in the ... Read More

  • Populists in Power
    • Abstract: Seen in historical perspective and conceptualized as simply as possible, modern populism is best defined as democratic illiberalism. In the era of postwar liberal democracy, populism presents a political alternative that retains elections, yet in other ways is inimical to the liberal principles and institutions that, by definition, underpin liberal democracy. To put it even more bluntly: Populism is the mirror-image opposite, and a major foe, of contemporary liberal democracy.What do I mean by liberal principles and institutions' Political liberalism as the world has known it since 1945 features three key—and interrelated—components. The first is its recognition that any society is unavoidably a place of many ... Read More

  • Armenia's Velvet Revolution
    • Abstract: Through much of the Eurasian region, deepening authoritarianism has been the defining political trend of recent years. In 2018, Armenia defied this pattern when a peaceful nationwide protest movement dislodged a deeply corrupt semiauthoritarian regime and set the stage for free and fair elections. The Kremlin, which has become the bulwark of Eurasian authoritarianism, projects a narrative that portrays the democratic changes of the early 1990s as a foreign aberration, a brief deviation from a historically determined authoritarian trajectory. Armenia's "Velvet Revolution" gives the lie to this narrative. Recalling earlier openings such as the national-liberation movements that arose in the waning years of the USSR ... Read More

  • The Freedom House Survey for 2018: Democracy in Retreat
    • Abstract: In 2018, Freedom House's annual survey recorded the thirteenth consecutive year of decline in freedom around the world. This reversal has spanned a variety of countries across every region, from longstanding democracies such as the United States to consolidated authoritarian regimes such as China and Russia. The overall losses for freedom are still shallow compared with the gains of the late twentieth century, but the pattern is consistent and ominous. Democracy is in retreat.In states that were already authoritarian (earning designations of Not Free from Freedom House), governments have increasingly shed the thin democratic façades that they had erected in previous decades. More authoritarian regimes are now ... Read More

  • Artificial Intelligence and Human Rights
    • Abstract: In democratic societies, concern about the consequences of our growing reliance upon artificial intelligence (AI) is rising. The term AI, coined by John McCarthy in 1956, is elusive in its precise meaning but today broadly refers to machines that can go beyond their explicit programming by making choices in ways that mirror human reasoning. In other words, AI automates decisions that people used to make.1While AI promises many benefits, there are also risks associated with the swift advancement and adoption of the technology. Perhaps the darkest concerns relate to misuse of AI by authoritarian regimes. Even in free societies, however, and even when the intended application is for clearly good purposes, there is ...

  • Rethinking Central-Bank Independence
    • Abstract: "Can Trump Fire Jerome Powell' It's a Political Question," read the title of a Wall Street Journal commentary on 10 December 2018. The author of the opinion piece drily reminded his audience that Powell, upon his appointment by U.S. president Donald Trump as the new chair of the Federal Reserve Board in February, had not been kidding when he started his remarks by saying that it was "a challenging time for central banking."1 Yet the revelation ten months later that Trump, unhappy about Fed interest-rate hikes that he blamed for a stock-market nosedive, had been discussing the idea of sacking the top central banker still took much of the financial and political world by surprise.Although many had gotten used to the ...

  • Catalonia: The Perils of Majoritarianism
    • Abstract: Over the past few years, the political relationship between Spain and the Autonomous Community (AC) of Catalonia has sharply deteriorated. This deterioration has in turn raised questions about how a liberal democracy can handle thorny issues of national unity and regional distinctiveness. The most dramatic event in the controversy so far came on 1 October 2017, when the government of Catalonia (known as the Generalitat) held an independence referendum without authorization from Madrid. The Spanish government subsequently suspended the region's autonomy and declared direct rule—a first since Spain's transition to democracy in 1975. Several Catalan politicians and activists have been arrested or have left to continue ... Read More

  • Nationalism, Democracy, and Memory Laws
    • Abstract: Controversies over historical interpretation have become a key focus of contemporary politics in countries across the world. Recently, these issues have taken on particular prominence in Europe, where a burgeoning array of laws governing how the past may be publicly recalled has sparked heated debates. Such "memory laws" have been enacted over the past several decades across a variety of regimes including the consolidated democracies of Spain and France, the backsliding democracy of Poland, the "defective" democracy of Ukraine, and an increasingly authoritarian Russia. Critically, most of these laws are intended to shape, rather than simply to reflect, social norms about how the past should be understood and ... Read More

  • The Era of Manipulation
    • Abstract: At the beginning of this century, it was widely assumed that the internet would usher in a new era of freedom. This technological wonder of computerized, open-architecture networking would allow people around the world to share information without constraints, eliminate media "gatekeepers," and foster extraordinary connections, bringing unprecedented advances in knowledge and democratic progress. So went the thinking.But in the arenas of politics and freedom of expression, this optimistic vision has not been realized. Instead, we find ourselves in a dramatically different set of circumstances, living in an era shaped not by openness, but rather by manipulation.Over the years, digital technologies have transformed ...

  • Election Watch
    • Abstract: Bangladesh: In December 31 elections for the 300 directly elected seats of Parliament, incumbent prime minister Sheikh Hasina Wajed's Awami League (AL) won 257 seats. The Jatiya Party (JP), AL's coalition partner, won 22 seats, and smaller coalition partners of AL won 9 seats, with AL's coalition receiving 288 seats in total. The AL's main political rival, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), and its coalition partner won only 8 seats, and the remaining seats were won by independents. The BNP did not boycott the elections, as it did in 2014, but Human Rights Watch and other observers have noted that it was severely limited in its ability to campaign by recent government crackdowns on dissent and freedom of ...

  • Documents on Democracy
    • Abstract: On 8 May 2018, Nikol Pashinian was elected prime minister of Armenia following a month of peaceful antigovernment protests leading to the resignation of Serzh Sarkisian, who had been in power since 2008. On 1 March 2019, Pashinian spoke at a memorial event for the people killed during protests following the 2008 election of Sarkisian. (For more information on the peaceful revolution in Armenia, see the article by Miriam Lanskoy and Elspeth Suthers on pp. 85–99 above.) Pashinian's remarks are excerpted below:This day eleven years ago, on March 1, 2008, blood was shed in the center of Yerevan, capital of Armenia.The then authorities used illegal force against peaceful demonstrators as a result of which 8 Armenian ...
