Five nations could determine the fate of the global democracy and human rights order. While the spread of democracy over the last three decades has inspired hope for an international liberal order, recent shifting power balances and democratic backsliding are shaking this foundation.  In Five Rising Democracies and the Fate of the International Liberal Order, Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Ted Piccone discusses how five pivotal countries-India, Brazil, South Africa, Turkey, and Indonesia-could play a critical role as examples and supporters of liberal ideas and practices.

Join us for a forum in which Mr. Piccone, Hardeep Singh Puri, former Ambassador of India to the UN and Secretary General of the Independent Commission on Multilateralism, and Antonio de Aguiar Patriota, Ambassador of Brazil to the UN and former Minister of External Relations, discuss the ways in which these countries stand out for their embrace of globalization and liberal norms on their own terms-and how, in a multipolar world, they may impact our shared future.

A reception and book signing will be held following the forum.

Sponsored by the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute and the Hunter College Human Rights Program.
