Are the US and the EU parting ways on democracy promotion?
The state of democracy in the world is fragile right now. While the ongoing autocratization takes up speed around the globe, with Russia and China meddling in other countries’ affairs more strongly than a decade ago, democracy’s two major supporters appear to part ways. Across the Atlantic, the U.S. seem increasingly uninterested in or unwilling to promote democracy abroad. On Europe, in contrast, the Von der Leyen Commission started with the intention to be a geopolitical one, striving for a stronger Europe in the world, including efforts to strengthen democracy in its neighbourhood and beyond. Join Thomas Carothers (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace) and Richard Youngs (Carnegie Europe) on a discussion on the future of EU-US democracy promotion efforts.
