The state of democracy and its processes in Asian countries is far from being homogenous and so are its challenges: some of them are specific to certain countries and others exemplary for the whole region. This conference pulls together interesting case-studies from different Asian countries addressing the following issues

  • Democratization and authoritarianism
  • Challenges to democracy from social media
  • Challenges to democracy under external influence
  • Challenges to local democracy and participation
