Steven Levitsky Justice Matters

How do democracies die? What lessons can we learn from the past as we seek to build more democratic societies and participatory public spheres?

Join us this month on Justice Matters as host Sushma Raman talks with Steve Levitsky, Professor of Government at Harvard University, Director of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, and co-author with Daniel Ziblatt of the bestselling book “How Democracies Die”. They discuss the state of democracy in the world today, weak and informal institutions, and how we can combat authoritarianism.
