As autocracy engulfs ever more countries, how should the world’s remaining democracies respond? Many are struggling to address internal demands from aggrieved citizens and pandemic pressures, while fending off attempts from authoritarian governments to undermine them from without and within.

Join the Carnegie Endowment on April 8 from 11:00 am-12:00 pm EDT as we discuss the Carnegie Endowment's recent report on the unique role middle-power democracies can play in supporting global democracy.
