Democracy in Decline

A Video Conversation with Yascha Mounk, New America Senior Fellow and Harvard University Lecturer

Yascha Mounk set off a heated discussion this year when the New America senior fellow wrote in the Journal of Democracy that democracy is at risk of being in decline in the U.S. and industrialized democracies.

Mounk, a lecturer in government at Harvard University, participated in a democracy discussion at the Bush Institute in May. He spoke then with Catalyst Editor William McKenzie about the factors he believes are contributing to a decline in the value of democratic freedoms.
