Lecture: Did Democracy Lose this Round? And Why?


Azmi Bishara, General Director of the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies, delivered a CIRS Monthly Dialogue on the topic “Did Democracy Lose this round? And Why?” on November 28, 2016. While these questions were posed in regard to the state of democracy in the Arab world in the wake of the recent uprisings, he noted that these concerns could be equally applied to the failure of liberal democracy in the West, and the rise of increasingly right-wing tendencies.
