Threats to Liberal Democracy

With the end of the Cold War and the expansion of NATO and the EU to virtually all Central and Eastern Europe, as well as other countries around the world joining the rules-based global trading system, liberal democracy seemed dominant as never before in history. However, a backlash to the financial crisis, growing inequality, and increased levels of immigration and migration have exposed many vulnerabilities of liberal democracy and revealed the social and cultural issues that encompass demographic anxiety.
