HPR 224G0001Honors Colloquium: Democracy in PerilThis course critically examines the degree to which citizens believe they can influence political affairs, what political scientists call the "efficacy" of democracy. We compare democracy with autocracy, historically, comparatively, and in our current moment. Students will analyze the strengths and weaknesses of both democracy and autocracy governance models, focusing on their impact on cultural cohesion, individual freedoms, and global stability. The course aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the multifaceted challenges threatening modern democracies, from the erosion of democratic norms and the rise of authoritarian practices to the impact of misinformation, polarization, and declining public trust. Integrating insights from political science, sociology, and economics, students will engage in critical discussions about the resilience of democratic institutions, the role of citizens in democratic renewal, and the potential for reforming democratic governance to address contemporary challenges.
