America has long advocated for democratic principles starting with its Founding Fathers who proclaimed our nation to be created by and for the people and joined with the liberal world to fight for our beliefs in two world wars.  Following those wars, the United States was in the forefront of international efforts to create global institutions dedicated to peace, prosperity and justice. Now, as a new era of international strongmen emerges, are America’s traditions and institutions capable of ensuring that democratic principles continue to push back on the tyranny that has threatened every generation?  Focusing on Europe, Latin America and the US, the symposium examines this moment with open eyes, asking tough questions about the global authoritarian threat, its underlying causes, and how it can be, and is being, countered.

Symposium program details, including schedule of events will be posted on the Santa Fe World Affairs Forum website.
