Liberal Democracy: How and Why It Emerges, Develops, Decays, and Reforms

Grant Year: 2018


Larry Diamond will research and write a book that examines the future of liberal democracy at a time when it appears to be in retreat and authoritarianism seems to be on the rise. He will draw on existing scholarship and policy thinking to better understand the emergence, development, consolidation, decay, and breakdown or reform of liberal democracy.
