Across the world, liberal democracy faces illiberal challenges. While spreading panic about the return of fascism is dangerous and out of focus, several countries are experiencing processes of autocratisation. 

On ECPR’s blog site The Loop, political comparativist Luca Manucci connected the dots and illustrated this worrying trend.

Since his first blog piece was published, back in August 2021, 17 essays have been penned in response, by contributors around the globe.

Join our 90-minute roundtable tackling the following questions:
  • How can we make sense of the processes of autocratisation taking place across the world?
  • What are the causes and consequences of these illiberal tendencies?  
  • What strategies can we adopt to combat autocratisation?

Free and open to all

The roundtable will take stock of the Loop's 🌊 Illiberalism essay series and bring the discussion forward with a group of international experts.
