The Center for Democracy and International Affairs Global Democracy program examines democracies around the world by observing how they function, which traits they share in common with other democracies and what differentiates democracies from one another as well as from other systems of government. In this program, we examine the impact of democracies on business and the economy, on education, healthcare, development and human rights. Democracy Seminars is an essential event series within the program focusing on specific aspects of a particular democracy.
