The National Endowment for Democracy NED, long-term partner and supporter of the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium and the M100 Young European Journalists Workshop, has published a series on “Sharp Ppower and Democratic Resilience”, which is also the issue of this year’s M100 Sanssouci Colloquium.
About the Sharp Power and Democratic Resilience Series:
As globalization deepens integration between democracies and autocracies, the compromising effects of sharp power—which impairs free expression, neutralizes independent institutions, and distorts the political environment—have grown apparent across crucial sectors of open societies. The Sharp Power and Democratic Resilience series is an effort to systematically analyze the ways in which leading authoritarian regimes seek to manipulate the political landscape and censor independent expression within democratic settings, and to highlight potential civil society responses.
