AbstractDemocracy Renewal brings together diverse opinions, analysis and statistics from academics, leaders, journalists and citizens from around the world on the state of contemporary liberal democracy. Established Western democracies are facing many challenges. In many of these democracies, governments seem unable to unite around or address some of the big public policy challenges of our time. Citizen disengagement is on the rise, with many voters, particularly young people, turning their backs on mainstream politics. Trust in governments and their political leaders is at record lows. By collating and organising the wealth of research, opinion and statistics on democracy around a simple and straightforward set of categories, Democracy Renewal aims to contribute to a better public understanding and debate about the scope of the challenges and why they may be occuring.
