Description

In the wake of the 2020 election and the January 6th attack on the Capitol, many Americans were confronted for the first time with a harsh reality that people around the globe have struggled with for generations: that democracies are fragile. This course will examine the vital role that a strong free media system plays in strengthening fledgling democracies and the challenges they face as a democracy declines. We will discuss the delicate balance journalists in new democracies face in supporting democratic norms and institutions in places without strong traditions while simultaneously keeping political, military, and law enforcement officials in check. We will focus on global examples of democracies in peril and identify lessons and warning signs for nations where democratic traditions are well-established.
