  • Social Media Disruption: Nigeria's WhatsApp Politics
    • Abstract: How are social media and digital technology shaping elections' In today's political environment, this question is both more urgent and more controversial than ever before. As internet penetration and access to smartphones expand, a growing share of voters are receiving information about politics via Twitter, Facebook, and a raft of digital messaging platforms. In most African countries, WhatsApp—a Facebook-owned app that enables users to share text messages, images, and voice notes over the internet—has become the default mode of telecommunication, especially in urban areas. Because WhatsApp is encrypted, it is also favored by government operatives trying to spread messages surreptitiously, and by opposition ... Read More

  • Social Media Disruption: Messaging Mistrust in Latin America
    • Abstract: Politics is playing out on social media as never before. Governments rely on these platforms to put out their messages and energize supporters. Their political opponents rally their ranks with a technology that levels the playing field in a way traditional media failed to do. Movements catch fire, organize, and outwit with posts that go viral. In turn, growing numbers of citizens turn to social media as a bridge to, and a source of, political news, sharing it within their networks and fueling the political engine further.1The implications for democracy are a growing concern for observers, scholars, and ordinary citizens alike. According to one 2019 study, 85 percent of Brazilians worried about distinguishing real ... Read More

  • The Prince
    • Abstract: Is there any less promising terrain for the emergence of liberal, democratic government than the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia' Debates rage over the precise alchemy that transforms dictatorships into democracies, but whatever one's preferred ingredient, Saudi Arabia is almost sure to be bereft of it. The country's history is entirely authoritarian, its people denied even the barest hint of political participation. The Kingdom's performance on the Polity IV Index—a common measure of a country's degree of democracy—is impressive in its dismal consistency: Saudi Arabia has earned the lowest possible score every year since 1946 (the first year for which data are available), a feat unmatched even by tyrannies such as Saddam ...

  • Documents on Democracy
    • Abstract: On May 4, Deputy U.S. National Security Advisor Matt Pottinger spoke at an event entitled "U.S.-China Relations in a Turbulent Time: Can Rivals Cooperate'" at the University of Virginia's Miller Center. His remarks are excerpted below:On May the fourth, 1919, following the end of World War I, thousands of university students from across Beijing converged on Tiananmen Square to protest China's unfair treatment at the Paris Peace Conference. Western nations chose to appease Imperial Japan by granting it control of Chinese territory that Germany had previously occupied, including the Shandong Peninsula.The Chinese students who marched to Tiananmen that day shouted "give us back Shandong!" and "don't sign the ...

  • A Glimpse of the Way Forward
    • Abstract: Thirty years ago, just as the Soviet bloc had begun to crumble, the first issue of the Journal of Democracy laid out this publication's mission. It declared from the outset that it would be "pluralistic," that its pages would be "open to a wide variety of perspectives and shades of opinion." Obviously, in the struggle between democracy and its opponents, the Journal would not be ambivalent. Rather, as a genuinely international forum for ideas and debate, it would seek to "advance understanding of the broader conditions and strategies for instituting, consolidating, and maintaining democratic government."1 As the totalitarian shadow of the Soviet Union receded, democracy's prospects appeared bright.We find ourselves ...

  • The Enduring Vulnerability of Liberal Democracy
    • Abstract: Liberal democracy is under pressure and on the defensive. After a three-decade global surge that brought the number of liberal democracies to a historic peak in 2005, the past fourteen years have witnessed a steady decline.1 Many liberal democracies have lost vitality and public support; some have shed key features of the liberal-democratic form of government; a few have abandoned it outright. From Hungary and Turkey to India and Brazil, authoritarian-minded leaders brandishing democratic credentials have sought to curtail minority rights and political competition. Many of these leaders have seized on the covid-19 pandemic to expand their emergency powers, which they will be reluctant to yield when the crisis ... Read More

  • China's Pandemic Power Play
    • Abstract: On 18 October 2017, long before the covid-19 pandemic, Xi Jinping stood in Beijing's Great Hall of the People and told the Nineteenth Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that China was entering a "new era." It would be a time, he said, in which all would "see China moving closer to center stage and making greater contributions to mankind." While it is common for top officials everywhere to proclaim confidence in national prospects, Xi's aplomb stood in sharp contrast to the more ambivalent and low-profile stance that modern Chinese leaders since Deng Xiaoping have favored when speaking of their country's international role.Assertiveness and self-confidence are now the order of the day. Xi has been eager ... Read More

  • Authoritarian Survival: Why Maduro Hasn't Fallen
    • Abstract: The autocratic regime that began forming in Venezuela under the late President Hugo Chávez two decades ago, and which has hardened under his successor Nicolás Maduro, has been by world standards both a typical and an unusual case of democratic backsliding. It has been typical in that the erosion of democracy has been led by the executive branch, and has happened via an incremental process that was ambiguous at first and has been polarizing all the way. It has been atypical, however, by dint of the sheer extent of the democratic backsliding that has taken place.1 The drop in level of "democratic-ness" from where Venezuela was a quarter-century ago to where it is now has been profound. It is hard to find recent cases ... Read More

It proudly staged ceremonies to commemorate this milestone, but before the year was out it would face widespread, bitter protests of a sort that have become familiar, denying its legitimacy and demanding an end to undemocratic rule by Shia Muslim clerics. The early months of 2020 brought the regime more high-profile troubles. These included the accidental shootdown of a civilian airliner and now encompass Iranian society's suffering as part of the covid-19 pandemic—a suffering that has grown worse even as top officials have refused to acknowledge the true extent and severity of what the disease has wrought for the people of Iran.The ...

  • The Future of Nonviolent Resistance
    • Abstract: Correction: This essay has been updated to correct the final date range in Figure 2, which was incorrectly rendered in the original version as 2010–09. The correct range is 2010–19. The editors regret this error. The original version is available here. The year 2019 saw what may have been the largest wave of mass, nonviolent antigovernment movements in recorded history.1 Large-scale protests, strikes, and demonstrations erupted across dozens of countries on an unprecedented scale. While 2011 has been called the year of the protester, 2019 has an even greater claim to that title.In some cases, these uprisings yielded dramatic results. In April 2019, Omar al-Bashir—the Sudanese tyrant who had overseen the ... Read More

  • How Taiwan Stands Up to China
    • Abstract: On 11 January 2020, Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen won reelection with a commanding 57 percent of the vote. She defeated her main challenger, Han Kuo-yu of the Chinese Nationalist Party or Kuomintang (KMT), by more than 18 points, and her Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) retained its majority in the Legislative Yuan, Taiwan's unicameral 113-seat parliament. Voters decisively rejected Han's populist appeals and the KMT's calls for closer relations with the People's Republic of China (PRC), and instead chose to keep the more China-skeptical DPP in power. The result was a setback for the PRC's Taiwan policy under Xi Jinping.The elections also demonstrated the impressive resilience of Taiwan's democracy. During ... Read More

  • South Korea's Democratic Decay
    • Abstract: For decades now, South Korea (hereafter Korea) has been touted as an exemplary case from the "third wave" of global democratization. Even the turmoil around the scandal-plagued presidency of Park Geun Hye, whose impeachment was demanded by the "candlelight protests" of 2016-17, was widely seen as a positive sign of maturing democracy, replete with ordinary Korean citizens taking an active part in their country's political affairs. More recently, Korea has enjoyed favorable international attention due to its strong performance against the coronavirus pandemic. Holding deaths from the disease to 277 as of 15 June 2020 counts in the eyes of the world as a victory of good governance, even if the methods used have ... Read More

  • Making Sense of Russia's Illiberalism
    • Abstract: Political movements declaring the rejection of liberalism are on the rise, almost everywhere. Until the covid-19 pandemic dramatically reshaped the international scene, the illiberal ascent was the most striking trend in world politics, stretching from the United States and Europe to Russia, from Turkey and Israel to Brazil, India, and the Philippines.1 This paradigm shift has been described in a variety of terms: far-right, populist, nationalist, national-populist. Yet it is the concept of illiberalism that most fully captures the nature of the movements that are challenging liberal-democratic systems around the globe.These movements explicitly identify liberalism as their enemy. They denounce, in varying ... Read More

  • Bolivia's Citizen Revolt
    • Abstract: While the world fixated on protests in neighboring Chile as well as distant Iraq and Hong Kong, Bolivians watched as President Evo Morales—"Evo," as he is generally known—boarded a plane and fled La Paz on 10 November 2019. Upon landing about 250 kilometers to the east in the province of Chapare (home to the coca-growers' unions that he had led since the late 1980s), he blamed his eviction from the presidency on a "civic coup" following the disputed October 20 general election.1 The next day, he boarded another plane—this one sent by the government of Mexico—to take him into exile. These events moved so quickly that even assiduous followers of Bolivian politics had a hard time comprehending exactly what had ... Read More
