Global Challenges to Democracy: Rights, Freedoms, and Human Development

The spread of democracy has been driven by a struggle for freedom and opportunities for human flourishing, yet democratic institutions based on full and inclusive citizenship face a variety of global challenges.

We analyze these through a cluster of collaborative, international and interdisciplinary workshops on:

  1. global rights and democracy;
  2. Indigenous rights and selfdetermination; and
  3. human development and the quality of democracy.
