Elections and Democracy in New Governments

Voters in Afghanistan and Ukraine embraced democracy. Iraqi insurgents call it an "evil principle." Almost everyone agrees it's a work in progress. We examine what it means when a nation moves toward democracy.

Guests:

Samuel Issacharoff, law professor, Columbia University

Eric Bjornlund, founder, Democracy International; author, Beyond Free and Fair: Monitoring Elections and Building Democracy

Thomas Carothers, director, Democracy and Rule of Law Project at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; author, Uncharted Journey: Promoting Democracy in the Middle East
