The agenda to support democracy around the world requires efforts to make the entire global system more democratic, not just at the national level. While the Global South remains disempowered, conversations about the rights of the citizens of those countries are necessarily limited.
Ruth welcomes a guest who has extensive experience studying both global governance and democracy in the Caribbean and Africa. Dr. W. Andy Knight is Professor of International Relations at the University of Alberta, and Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
