Overview

The events surrounding the U.S. presidential transition have brought a new appreciation for the complexities inherent in modern democratic governance. Penetrating, hard questions are being asked about democratic resiliency in the face of unprecedented challenges.

These issues go well beyond the United States, the traditional North Star of global democracy promotion. What does it say about other democracies worldwide if the United States itself is faced with such challenges? What about U.S. credibility in promoting democratic values abroad, particularly in confronting authoritarian regimes? What are primary considerations for reestablishing a meaningful democracy promotion agenda worldwide? And, perhaps most importantly, what must be done now to ensure that the “end of history” turns out to be democratic?

Please join the Americas Society/Council of the Americas as we grapple with these topics during a timely conversation with two of the most prominent and influential advocates of global democracy promotion, former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former White House Chief of Staff Mack McLarty.

This interactive event is available via Webex for AS and COA members and members of the press. Additionally, for members of the wider viewing audience, we are delighted to have the opportunity to broadcast the event live on this page.
