SSRC-IFS Workshop: "Performance of Democracies"

, 7:00am –

This workshop, held at Oxford University’s Blavatnik School of Government, was the first in a series of convening's organized as part of a collaboration between the SSRC’s Anxieties of Democracy program and our namesake Swedish partner program, The Anxieties of Democracy Program.

The workshop addressed the question of democratic performance, and why democracies are sometimes outperformed by autocracies. Topics included political legitimacy, socio-economic inequality, control of corruption, and sustainable public finances. The workshop was generously supported by the Swedish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Institute for Future Studies.
