Difference between Anti-Brussels and Anti-Europe: the Stability of Liberal Democracies of EU Member States

The blog refers to the theory of Yascha Mounk, a lecturer of Government at Harvard, whom seems to be pessimistic about the future of liberal democracies. Mr. Mounk has spent the past few years challenging one of the bedrock assumptions of Western politics: that once a country becomes a liberal democracy, it will stay that way. His research suggests something quite different: that liberal democracies around the world may be at serious risk of decline. The question is whether we should be worried for the stability of the EU.
