WCED Panel: Democratic Survival in the Muslim World @ Virtual

Democracy has emerged in many Muslim-majority countries in recent decades; but like in many other parts of the world, Muslim-majority democracies have experienced substantial democratic erosion and confront a growing threat of total democratic breakdown. Amid these worrisome global trends, what are the common and specific challenges for democratic consolidation across Muslim-majority countries? Our panel brings together scholars working on the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa, North Africa, and Southeast Asia to examine the prospects for democratic survival in the Muslim world.

The panel will be broadcast on Zoom. Registration is required at http://myumi.ch/Gkzvm.
