At the heart of democracy lies peace, security and resilience, and for some countries, these qualities are the toughest to come by. So where does a nation even begin when trying to build a strong, resilient and lasting democracy? In this episode of Democracy! The Podcast, we head to the Republic of Sudan in northeast Africa to seek some answers.
Then, Ambassador Derek Mitchell, the President of the National Democratic Institute, has seen democracy rise and fall from nearly every existing angle. He talks to Adrienne about witnessing some of democracy’s most remarkable moments and shares a retrospective look at what it all means.
Democracy! The Podcast is brought to you by the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) with support from the United States Agency for International Development through the Global Elections and Political Transitions Award.
