The greatest minds wondered what is democracy and whether it is…

Is it important to live in a democracy?

Mesropyan Emma, student of Stavropol State Agrarian University 

Currently the most optimal political regime is democracy; democracy means the power of the people. Obviously, any liberal, defender of humans, humanist, everyone who considers himself a modern progressive person believes that it is good; the most important public problems should be solved by popular vote. If any country, for example, China, which has a developing industry and an expanding domestic market, does not…

IS IT IMPORTANT TO LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY?

NAME: ILECHUKWU SUCCESS. NAME OF SCHOOL: CEDEC INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL. HIGH SCHOOL TOPIC: IS IT IMPORTANT TO LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY?

Is it important to live in a democracy?

In the last election in Ghana, I stayed up all night glued to the television as ballot papers were counted and compiled. The excitement that heralded the announcement of the election result was palpable in my town and in every corner groups of people huddled together to discuss the possible outcome. When the results were finally announced, I was awed when I found out that the candidate I had cast my vote for was victorious. I paused to think about what had just happened; my single vote had…

Is it important to live in a Democracy? It depends.

Democracy -- rule by the people -- is strongly tied to human flourishing. Rule by the people results in a myriad of different government structures, but the underlying principle remains fixed: the opportunity of the governed to participate in the selection and decision-making of the governing. No two democracies are identical, but they all possess some degree of participation. Many regard democratic governance as end point of the evolution of government. Case…

Making Foreign Policy Relevant Again, with Asha Castleberry & Ali Wyne

Has a gap opened up between the U.S. national security community and the general public over foreign policy? If so, why? How can we close it? This panel with foreign policy experts Asha Castleberry and Ali Wyne is part of a larger effort by Carnegie Council's U.S. Global Engagement Program to examine drivers in U.S. politics pushing the United States to disengage from international affairs.

The Ethics of the "Doorstep"

The "doorstep test" requires policymakers to be able to articulate how, and to what degree, something happening in the world connects to the day-to-day experience, needs, and interests of the citizenry. This construct requires honesty and reminds us that domestic policy and foreign policy ought to be linked.

Malaysian & Indonesian Elections, with Meredith Weiss & Jeremy Menchik

This fascinating conversation begins with a discussion of the critical importance of Southeast Asia, including the rise of China and its ambitions in the region. Then Professor Weiss focuses on Malaysia and the return of the formidable 93-year old Mahathir as prime minister. Next, Professor Menchik discusses the complex situation in Indonesia--a country with 17,000 islands and 300-plus ethnic groups--and the upcoming elections there.
