VIRTUAL EVENT | Reversing the Ride: Towards a New US Strategy to Support Democracy and Counter Authoritarianism
Join us and spread the word to your community
Freedom House, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and the McCain Institute formed the Task Force on US Strategy to Support Democracy and Counter Authoritarianism, a bipartisan group of leaders, experts, and former policy makers committed to addressing the worldwide decline in democratic freedom and the rise in authoritarianism that endanger US national security.
In recent decades, the rapid pace of technological, economic, demographic, and geopolitical change has challenged democracies and created space for authoritarians to flourish. Now, looming political and economic crises exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic threaten the political processes and underlying stability of many democracies.
On April 14, the Task Force will release its report on these profound global changes and impart its recommendations for a US foreign policy and national security strategy that prioritizes the advancement of democracy and the fight against authoritarianism.
Please join us for conversations about the future of global democracy featuring US Sen. Mitt Romney, journalist Nina Easton, Executive Chairman of the McCain Institute Ambassador Josette Sheeran, CSIS president and CEO John Hamre, Freedom House president Michael J. Abramowitz, and members of the Task Force, as well as remarks by Honorable Linda Thomas-Greenfield, United States Ambassador to the United Nations.
