Our democracy in peril: A conversation with Steven Levitsky


Please join the Global Policy Institute at Loyola Marymount University for a discussion with Steven Levitsky, Ph.D., award-winning coauthor of "How Democracies Die" (Crown, 2018).

Drawing on decades of research and a wide range of historical and global examples, Levitsky will address the demise of liberal democracies around the world and answer the question: is our democracy in danger?

Levitsky is David Rockefeller Professor of Latin American Studies and professor of government at Harvard University. His research focuses on democratization and authoritarianism, as well as political parties and weak and informal institutions, primarily in Latin America. 

The Global Policy Institute at LMU is pleased to honor Steven Levitsky and co-author Daniel Ziblatt with the 2019 Global Policy Book Award.
