The Projection of Malign Authoritarian Influence: Vulnerable Democracies in Contested Space

Grant Year: 2016


Christopher Walker will lead an effort to examine the strategies and tools that authoritarian states use to undermine young democracies. He will commission research and analyses on Slovakia, Poland, Argentina, and Peru in order to identify the ways authoritarian powers, particularly Russia and China, project influence into and seek to weaken emerging democracies. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
