S3E9: Gov­er­nance in Illib­er­al Democracies 

This episode explores the polit­i­cal phe­nom­e­na relat­ed to gov­er­nance in illib­er­al democ­ra­cies. What rela­tion­ships do such regimes have to the rule of law and the con­sti­tu­tion? How does legal cheat­ing play a role in the gov­er­nance style? And how can democ­ra­cy be restored after an illib­er­al interlude?

Guests fea­tured in this episode:

Pro­fes­sor Andras Sajo, for­mer judge at the Euro­pean Court of Human Rights & found­ing Dean of Legal Stud­ies Depart­ment at the Cen­tral Euro­pean University,
