Open to all members of the Princeton University community. Not open to the public.


Event Description


This large conference of internationally and US-based scholars aims to bring together experts in the study of democracy from institutional, behavioral, historical, and cross-country perspectives to discuss populism and threats to established democracies. What challenges does authoritarian populism pose to elections, the media, and other democratic institutions? What do recent elections teach us about populist threats to democracy?  

The conference will be the second iteration of CSDP's conference series on democratic frontsliding, which looks at ways in which we might pre-empt democratic backsliding in established democracies.
