The Current State of Democracy in Russia
Date: Friday, Sept. 18, 2020
Time: 3:30-5 p.m.
Host: Center for Historical Research in the Department of History and the Institute for Democratic Engagement and Accountability
You're invited to a lecture by Gerald Easter, professor of comparative politics at Boston College.
This guest lecture is part of a two-year program of lectures and seminars on the topic of “Democracy in a Time of Change and Challenges” presented by the Center for Historical Research (CHR) in the Department of History, in association with the Ohio State Institute for Democratic Engagement and Accountability (IDEA). There are concerns that democracy, whatever form it may take, is under stress around the world. This CHR series will examine what is meant by democracy in various regions and countries, how these meanings are changing and the extent to which democracy is changing and/or under sustained and serious attack. Is democracy evolving, and, if so, how and why? Or is the story really more one of democracy as something that is increasingly endangered? If it’s the latter, what are the most important causes of that situation and what, if anything, can be done about it?
