Launch of the Democratic Decay Resource (DEM-DEC)

Are you concerned about threats to democracy in states worldwide including the US, France, Poland, India, Japan or Brazil or the emergence of dictatorship in states such as Venezuela? Do you want to know how Australia fits in this global picture?

Join us for a panel discussing the challenge posed by the global deterioration of democratic rule.
