Speaker Steven Levitsky
Thursday, November 11, 2021 at 5:30 pm
What is the state of democracy in America? Drawing on research on the collapse of democracies elsewhere, Professor Levitsky will discuss the key indicators of authoritarian behavior and parallels to American democracy. “Democracy no longer ends with a bang—in a revolution or military coup—but with a whimper: the slow, steady weakening of critical institutions, such as the judiciary and the press, and the gradual erosion of long-standing political norms." He will also discuss the threats posed by voter suppression and election subversion and how we can address these challenges.
Steven Levitsky is the David Rockefeller Professor of Latin American Studies and Professor of Government, as well as Director of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University. He is the co-author (with Daniel Ziblatt) of How Democracies Die, a New York Times best seller, which was published in 25 languages.
