The Journal of Democracy is pleased to provide you with this link to the new essay by scholars Roberto Foa and Yascha Mounk on the troubling decline of belief in democracy among citizens of advanced democracies. Entitled “The Signs of Deconsolidation,” this essay will be published in the January 2017 of the Journal, but a pre-print copy is available now.
Foa and Mounk make a signal contribution to our understanding of democracy’s current troubles. Anyone who cares about the future of liberal democracy will want to read this essay.
