Celebrating 30 Years of the
Journal of Democracy

Contributors to the Journal of Democracy’s special 30th anniversary issue reflect on democracy’s prospects in a shifting global landscape. In his introductory essay, Journal coeditor Marc F. Plattner writes that the issue’s focus “reflects our sense that we are in the early stages of what is likely to be a long struggle. Democracy may be down, but it certainly is not out.” The articles in this issue are available free of charge through February 15 at Project MUSE.
The January 2020 issue is the last issue under the leadership of Marc F. Plattner. With Plattner’s retirement, William J. Dobson has assumed the position of coeditor of the Journal. Dobson was most recently chief international editor at NPR and is author of The Dictator’s Learning Curve: Inside the Global Battle for Democracy (2012). Read more in the full press release.

To commemorate the anniversary, the International Forum for Democratic Studies held a celebration on January 23, 2020 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC, entitled “Democracy Embattled.”

“The greatest threats to liberal democracy are internal—the rise of an ‘illiberal democracy’ that erodes protections for individual freedom; an ethnonationalism at war with social diversity; and a loss of confidence among leading democracies that makes their leaders less willing to use political and economic power to create a supportive geopolitical climate for democracy.”
