Demonstrations of power

A conversation with Michael Zürn

War in Ukraine and threats against the West, democracies that are gradually being disempowered: Strong autocratic systems have emerged that have an internally repressive effect, are more aggressive than ever externally and put democracies under pressure with their massive demands. What has changed? What types of autocracies have emerged? How should the West react to this? Gabriele Kammerer and Kerstin Schneider spoke with Michael Zürn, Director of the Global Governance department, about the war in Ukraine, the behavior of the West and the new strong autocracies - you can listen to them (in German) on the online platform of the WZB-Mitteilungen.
