John Davenport (USA) in conversation with Nico Andreas Heller
Strengthening Democracy, Domestically and Globally
John Davenport is on a mission to save liberal democracy in the US and globally; and has recently published influential op-eds on fixing US elections, how just war theory supports fighting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and recent initiatives calling for a global alliance of democracies.
In this Reboot Interview John talks about concrete measures we could be, indeed should be putting in place to stabilise American and strengthen global democracy. These include specific amendments to the US Constitution as well as the establishment of a ‘D10plus’, a group of leading democracies (that would include South Korea, Australia and India, plus possibly one or to others) along the lines of the G7/20, but without the authoritarian regimes that currently undermine our democracies everywhere.
