About the Biennial
Around the world, people are questioning democracy both in principle and in practice. Democratic systems face unprecedented challenges that make it imperative that we take a fresh look—reflecting on history, comparing aspirations and reality, asking why democracy is falling out of favor, and discovering what must be done if democracy is to work for everyone.
This critical exploration begins with the inaugural UVA Democracy Biennial.
