‘The Myth of Sudden Death’, Gagarin (Budapest), podcast interview with Réka Kinga Papp, 26 May 2023

  |   Democracy in the 21st Century   |   No comment

Although it makes for a great dramatic effect, the theories of the sudden death of democracy disregard the gradual erosion and capture of institutions, and the role of the populace – argues political scientist John Keane.

Earlier this year, John Keane started off a discussion on the death of democracies in Eurozine’s focal point ‘The writing on the wall’. Since then, the pace of a democracy breakdown have been discussed by several authors. Together with editor-in-chief Réka Kinga Papp, Keane discusses his article ‘How democracies die, fast and slow’  and the lack of biospheric representation as a democratic death threat.
