Is democracy dying?

The perceived inability of governments to address social demands, as well as perceptions of subpar performance in addressing the effects of the economic crisis, corruption, and inequalities, could all be contributing factors to declines in public support for democracy. Other factors include more adversarial political conflicts that threaten the legitimacy of democratic institutions. Some ethno-nationalist strategies use religion as a political weapon (e.g., in India), whereas others attack gender equality and LGBTQIA+ rights (e.g., in Hungary, Poland, and Turkey). The struggle to balance freedom of expression with public safety and the scourge of disinformation can further democratic decline. As social media play a larger role in politics, countries are struggling to address a host of issues effectively and responsibly, including fake news, foreign governments’ manipulation of social platforms to influence public opinion, data privacy, the firms’ monopoly of the market, and the firms’ lack of transparency.
