Authoritarianism and Democratic Decline

Thursday, October 8, 7:00pm

Join us on Thursday, October 8th at 7:00 PM (EST) for an important panel that will bring together two of the world’s leading experts on authoritarianism and trends in democracy, and will discuss the resurgent assaults on global democracies and human rights.

In recent years, the world has seen an increasing number of governments stifle freedom of the press, engage in democratic backsliding and scapegoat religious and ethnic minorities, practices that have led to an increase in atrocity crimes.

This timely and important webinar will consist of a high-level panel of distinguished speakers:

Michael Abramowitz – President of Freedom House

The Honourable Irwin Cotler – Chair of the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights and
former Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada and longtime Parliamentarian

Anne Gearan – White House Correspondent for the Washington Post
