Democracy under Threat – A Crisis of Legitimacy? in Stellenbosch

The Konrad Adenauer Foundation in cooperation with the Transformation Research Unit (TRU) hosted the launch of the book 'Democracy Under Threat - A Crisis of Legitimacy?' edited by Ursula van Beek in Stellenbosch.

Details

Building on nearly two decades of studying democracy across major global cultures, this book addresses some of the most pressing questions of our time:


  • Is democracy threatened by globalization?
  • Is there a legitimacy crisis in contemporary democracies?
  • Is the welfare state under pressure from global trends?
  • What are the implications of mass migration and rising populism?
  • Does authoritarianism pose a challenge?
