Steven Levitsky in conversation with Rodrigo Pardo

Are democracies disappearing?

Colombia Digital 2021, 

Steven Levitsky (United States) has a doctorate in Politics from the University of Berkeley and he lectures at Harvard. His research covers political parties, authoritarianism, populism and democracy, with a special focus on Latin America, particularly Argentina and Peru. His most recent book, How Democracies Die, written with Daniel Ziblatt, analyses different examples of populism around the world and the damage it does to the survival of democracy.
