Demo democracy? Nic Cheeseman, Professor of Democracy at the University of Birmingham

It’s hard to find a more loaded subject in governance and international relations than democracy. On the national level, it’s supposed to be a safe way of ensuring that governments are accessible and responsive to the people. Yet, internationally, it can be a major source of insecurity, and one that’s driven by the maneuverings of foreign powers. Is it possible to decouple domestic governance from geopolitical games? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Nic Cheeseman, Professor of Democracy at the University of Birmingham, in the UK, and co-author of ‘How to Rig an Election’.
