During this super election year, we are looking at the democratic development in the world. Is the world on its way to become more democratic or take the turn towards the other side? What country will become more democratic and which ones will be less democratic? Are there countries that managed to take a turn on a negative outvome? And how is it going for Sweden?
The V-Dem institute sums up every year's data about the democratic situation i every country of the world. In this lecture will be presented the results of the last rapport that came out in March this year.

This year we are happy to present you an additional program which will be held online.
