Democracy for All - A global status update from the Varieties of Democracy Institute
4 Sep 2018 -  The Interactive Panel Discussion seeks to present the V-Dem Democracy Report 2018 and discuss the findings, namely that global levels of democracy are still close to an all-time high. Despite, this, even though the electoral aspects of democracy have improved in many countries in recent years, freedom of expression, media, and civil society are under threat in other parts of the world. The report also presents evidence that political exclusion based on socioeconomic status is becoming increasingly severe.
