After Democracy - What Happens When Freedom Erodes?

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Nov 28, 2018 | Foreign Affairs,, Dan Slater

When democracy erodes, what remains? When a democracy backslides, where does it wind up? When democracy dies, what is born? Dan Slater provides a simple answer to these questions: Authoritarianism. But in his article for Foreign Affairs, he suggests that   authoritarian regimes are just as diverse as democracies. Authoritarianism is not simply the absence of democracy but a menagerie of different beasts that behave in different ways. For this reason, he suggests that democracy is under threat but that the threat is not singular. He shows that both illiberal democracy and electoral authoritarianism exist today and that both threaten to take hold where democracy erodes.
