Democracy Dialogues: A Conversation with Arturo Sarukhan
As part of the Democracy Dialogues series, Eric Farnsworth interviewed the former ambassador of Mexico to the United States.
As we turn the corner to 2022, democracy in the Americas is arguably less secure than when the Inter-American Democratic Charter was signed in 2001. Two countries—Nicaragua and Venezuela—can no longer plausibly be considered democratic, while El Salvador, Haiti, and others are in various stages of democratic decay. The next edition of the #DemocracyDialogues will feature a conversation with Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan, a keen observer of democratic institutions and governance within North America and across Latin America, for a discussion of the state of democracy in the Americas with a special focus on Mexico.
