Susan Stokes, faculty chair of the Chicago Center on Democracy, has co-authored a new essay in The Wilson Quarterly on the rise of mass protests over the past decade. She and her co-author, S. Erdem Aytaç, describe the mass demonstrations that have taken place across the world—from Ecuador to Tehran, Santiago to Beirut, Delhi to Paris—and raise the question: are these protests a sign of democracy in action, or democracy in crisis?
