Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt, political scientists at Harvard University and co-authors of award-winning book “How Democracies Die,” will deliver Loyola University Maryland’s Hanway Lecture in Global Studies on Thursday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. in McGuire Hall. The event will also be livestreamed.

Levitzky and Ziblatt will present “Killing Democracies from Within.” The moderated discussion will discuss how elected leaders weaken democracies from the inside by degrading the government’s ability to function and by stoking polarization in society to funnel power to themselves. The rise of authoritarian governments conjures images of violent dictators, revolutions, and mobs, but Levitsky and Ziblatt will show how political changes are usually slow-building and subtle.
