2024 will go down in history as a super election year. Never have so many people had the opportunity to make their democratic voices heard as this year. At the same time, we are in the midst of what’s known as a period of  ‘democratic backsliding’ with more and more countries turning towards an autocratic system of governance. What can aid do to improve the chances of increased democratisation, and what conditions are required for citizens in semi-autocratic countries to regain political power?

Welcome to a seminar where Adea Gafuri, Elizaveta Kopacheva, and Valeriya Mechkova will present and discuss their research together with Anna Sundström, Secretary General for the Olof Palme International Center
