The people vs. democracy : why our freedom is in danger and how to save it by Yascha Mounk( Book )

19 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From India to Turkey, from Poland to the United States, authoritarian populists have seized power. Two core components of liberal democracy--individual rights and the popular will--are at war, putting democracy itself at risk. In plain language, Yascha Mounk describes how we got here, where we need to go, and why there is little time left to waste.--
The Age of Responsibility : luck, choice, and the welfare state by Yascha Mounk( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novel focus on "personal responsibility" has transformed political thought and public policy in America and Europe. Since the 1970s, responsibility--which once meant the moral duty to help and support others--has come to suggest an obligation to be self-sufficient. This narrow conception of responsibility has guided recent reforms of the welfare state, making key entitlements conditional on good behavior. Drawing on intellectual history, political theory, and moral philosophy, Yascha Mounk shows why the Age of Responsibility is pernicious--and how it might be overcome. Mounk shows that today's focus on individual culpability is both wrong and counterproductive: it distracts us from the larger economic forces determining aggregate outcomes, ignores what we owe our fellow citizens regardless of their choices, and blinds us to other key values, such as the desire to live in a society of equals. Recognizing that even society's neediest members seek to exercise genuine agency, Mounk builds a positive conception of responsibility. Instead of punishing individuals for their past choices, he argues, public policy should aim to empower them to take responsibility for themselves--and those around them.--
Der Zerfall der Demokratie wie der Populismus den Rechtsstaat bedroht by Yascha Mounk( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in German and Undetermined and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Demokratie steckt weltweit in einer tiefen Krise. Die Zahl der Protestwähler steigt, Populisten erstarken, traditionelle Parteiensysteme kollabieren. Der renommierte Politologe Yascha Mounk untersucht diesen alarmierenden Zustand, der zwei Muster erkennen lässt: Entweder werden wie in den USA, Ungarn, Polen und der Türkei Demagogen ins Amt gewählt, die die Rechte von Minderheiten mit Füßen treten, oder eine Regierung verschanzt sich, freiheitliche Rechte garantierend, hinter technokratischen Entscheidungen - und verliert wie in Deutschland, Großbritannien und Frankreich zunehmend an Volksnähe. Klar und deutlich erklärt Mounk die komplexen Gründe und Mechanismen, die die Demokratie zu Fall bringen können. Er benennt Maßnahmen, um bedrohte soziale und politische Werte für die Zukunft zu retten. Dazu gehört, eine breite Koalition gegen Populisten aufzubauen, die Unabhängigkeit der Justiz und Presse zu verteidigen, die Teilhabe der Bevölkerung an politischen Prozessen zu stärken, die soziale Ungleichheit zu bekämpfen - und vor allem die persönliche Komfortzone zu verlassen, um sich im Sinne der Demokratie politisch zu engagieren. Eine brillante und aufrüttelnde Analyse unserer politisch aufgeheizten Gegenwart. Quelle: Klappentext

[Panel discussion on the state of liberal democracies]( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Diane Rehm moderates a discussion about the state of liberal democracies with the rise of populist leaders in Europe and the election of Donald Trump in the U.S. Guests are: Moises Naim, distinguished fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Alina Polyakova, deputy director of the Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center and Yascha Mounk, lecturer on government at Harvard University. They identify the elements of a stable democracy and nations that could be at risk and point to the campaign rhetoric of Donald Trump, his open admiration for Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin, and his choices for top positions in his administration. They also draw a distinction between a liberal democracy which honors the rule of law, and populist governments where a leader or a governing party can undermine basic democratic norms and constitutional protections. On "The Diane Rehm show."
