The puzzle of non-western democracy

The Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit is pleased to invite you to a panel discussion and launch of Richard Youngs' new book, The Puzzle of Non-Western Democracy (Carnegie Europe).The book argues that the international community should be doing more to foster democratic variation that is tailored to the specific conditions of different countries and regions, and maps out the potential for such democratic variation.

For more on the book, read Richard Youngs' article on LSE's Democratic Audit blog.
