Dismantling Democracy

Narrated by political commentator Tara Setmayer, the three-part series DISMANTLING DEMOCRACY examines democratic structures in the United States and around the world. Interviews offer powerful perspectives as the series depicts factors behind the gradual deterioration of the effectiveness of a democratic form of government. Looking at the history and current state of democracies, preserving democracy is a feat no less significant than its establishment. Key contributors include: Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Tim Kaine (D-VA); University of Virginia Center for Politics' Larry Sabato; Steven Levitsky, co-author of "How Democracies Die"; actor Anne Dowd ("The Handmaid's Tale"); and GZERO WORLD host Ian Bremmer.
