Also part of The Promise and Perils of Democracy Series: Democracy is under threat. Around the world, we see the rise of anti-democratic movements, leaders, and policies. To address this crisis and explore possible solutions, The Graduate Center will dedicate two years of public programming and scholarship to understanding the present state and future of democracy. This fall, we present several events in this timely new series.
