Episode 29: State of Democracy, Part III

In this final episode of our State of Democracy series, we discuss the importance of a vibrant civil society, which is frequently discussed in foreign policy circles, but less so here at home. Jeanne Hruska speaks with Sarah Holewinski from Human Rights Watch and Jon Temin from Freedom House about what we, as civil society stakeholders, can do to strengthen democracy, and whether our involvement is actually a prerequisite for this task. They also reflect back on President Biden's Summit for Democracy and what needs to happen moving forward to reverse the decline in global freedom.

Episode Host: Jeanne Hruska, ACS Senior Advisor for Communications and Strategy
Episode Guests: Sarah Holewinski , Washington Director, Human Rights Watch, Jon Temin, Director of the Africa Program at Freedom House
