In the past decade, liberal democracies around the world have been attacked from within, and the United States is no exception. Democratic decline is of increased importance in a presidential election year in which many expect there to be challenges to the results, similar to those we saw in 2020.

On June 17, Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution hosted a webinar about democratic decline in the United States. Panelists discussed threats to American democracy as well as responses to this emerging challenge from both public institutions and civil society. Viewers submitted questions for speakers by emailing [email protected] and via Twitter at @BrookingsGov by using #ThreatsToDemocracy.
