The Democracy Agenda a tvo & TORONTO STAR (partnership Just a few decades ago, democracy's triumph seemed inevitable. The Berlin Wall had fallen, the rules-based international order was ascendant, and experts declared that the ancient struggle over what form of government is best had finally been resolved. But amid the rise of totalitarian states, declining commitment to democracy in the West, resurgent populism and post-truth politics, the picture today is very different. Tonight, the Star and TVO will examine the roots of this so-called democratic recession in the latest installment of The Democracy Agenda, with accompanying column by host Steve Paikin in the Star today, probing the threats democracy faces and how they might be countered. THIS EPISODE WILL FEATURE: Star Queen's Park columnist Martin Regg Cohn; Bessma Momani, professor of political science at the University of Waterloo; Lucan Ahmad Way, professor of political science at the University of Toronto; and Chad Rogers, partner at Crestview Strategy.
