2024 is the biggest election year in history. Approximately 4 billion people will be voting in presidential, legislative and local elections around the world. Among the countries slated to hold elections this year are: India, South Africa, Mexico, the U.K., and the U.S. Even as we celebrate the record number of countries and people going to the polls, we are witnessing "democratic backsliding," the erosion of civil liberties, and the rise of far-right parties. The panel will discuss emerging threats to democracy, the stakes and likely outcomes of pivotal elections and their implications for international peace and security.

Speakers:
Cora Fernandes Anderson, Associate Professor of Politics
Adam Hilton, Assistant Professor of Politics
Abhilash Mehdi, Assistant Professor of History
Christopher Mitchell, Assistant Professor of History
