The Journal of Democracy mourns the passing of Václav Havel, perhaps the leading democratic figure of the past quarter-century. In the April 2012 issue, the Journal will publish a remarkable tribute (PDF) to Havel by the authors of “Charter 08,” the leading Chinese declaration in support of democracy and human rights. We are also pleased to post “In Praise of Václav Havel,” (PDF) an article by Jacques Rupnik published in the July 2010 issue of the Journal.
