Uncommon Knowledge: Russia, China, and the Future of Democracy

In a special edition of Uncommon Knowledge at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit, I interview former presidents and prime ministers on one subject: democracy. Following a unique format, I ask each of the guests the same questions to get their distinctive perspectives on issues such as the rise of authoritarianism in Russia, Communist China, and the prospects for democracy.

The guests include the former deputy prime minister of the United Kingdom, Nick Clegg; former president of Mexico, Felipe Calderón; former president of Estonia and current Hoover visiting fellow, Toomas Hendrik Ilves; and former prime minister of Denmark, Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
