Are we witnessing the return of strong-man politics?

About this event

Are we witnessing the return of strong-man politics, where democratically elected leaders from around the globe became ever more authoritarian under a veneer of liberal democracy? The playbook of centralising power; cracking down on opponents and the media; and offering domestic voters’ simple popular responses to complex geopolitical situations can appear all too common.  How do we keep authoritarians in check and how worried should democracy be?
