Breakfast for Democracy

Breakfasts for Democracy (#bffDemocracy) is a seminar series organised by the research project ‘Breaking BAD: Understanding the Backlash Against Democracy in Africa’ in cooperation with Bergen Global. In the series, we discuss current events in world politics in light of research on processes of democratisation and autocratisation. Breaking BAD is a joint University of Bergen and CMI research project funded by the Norwegian Research Council.

Understanding the Backlash against Democracy in Africa, Breaking BAD studies the history and development of key legal and political rights, and combine this knowledge with collecting new data on elite behaviour in the same countries today. This will give us a better understanding of the composition, causes and consequences of the backlash against the democracy.
