journal of democracy

Join us for our next Reading Group of “The Danger of Deconsolidation” by Ronald Inglehart published in the Journal of Democracy.

Date: Wednesday, November 29.
Time: 6:30 PM
Place: Saint Ignatius Jesuit College of Excellence, 1085 Budapest, Horánszky street 18.

The Journal of Democracy is the world’s leading publication on the theory and practice of democracy. Since its first appearance in 1990, it has engaged both activists and intellectuals in critical discussions of the problems of and prospects for democracy around the world. Today, the Journal is at the center of debate on the major social, political, and cultural challenges that confront emerging and established democracies alike.
“The Danger of Deconsolidation” debates Foa and Mounk’s central claim that public faith in democracy has eroded during the past two decades while support for nondemocratic alternatives has risen. In fact, evidence from some key indicators suggests that the mass basis of support for democracy is growing stronger.
The discussion will be led by Dorián Elek from Common Sense Society
