"Democracy in Mali and Iran: Personal Accounts from International Students" presented by Nana Maiga & Shirin Bouzari, International Undergraduate Students

What is the state of democracy in the world today?  Who are the advocates of democracy and how do they make their voices known in the ballot box, in street demonstrations, and via social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook.   Can democracy find root in societies where dictatorship, political exclusion, corruption and fanaticism have often been seen to dominate?  Join us for the Fall Fairhaven Lecture Series, “Democracy Today: An International Perspective,” to examine our increasingly democratic world and what it really means to participate.
