“Are We in a New Era of Great Power Competition?”

Torrey Taussig, Nonresident Fellow, Foreign Policy, Brookings Institution and Robert Bosch Foundation-Fellow

Frankfurt am Main

In a rising number of Western democracies, populist movements have become increasingly popular, questioning the foundations of democratic systems. At the same time, authoritarian regimes in China and Russia boast political, economic and military success and manage to expand their spheres of influence. These systems try to present themselves as efficient alternatives to Western liberal democracies. What are the consequences of the success of authoritarian states for the Western world? Which measures can and have to be taken today in order to protect democracy? How should democracies react to external interferences?

Torrey Taussig is a nonresident fellow in the Foreign Policy program at Brookings and is currently based in Berlin as a Robert Bosch Foundation Fellow. Among her areas of expertise are U.S. foreign policy, European and Asian security and the relationship between the United States and Russia. Furthermore, she does research on global trends with regard to democracy and authoritarianism. Prior to Brookings, Taussig worked at the U.S. Department of State, the Glover Park Group and the Council on Foreign Relations. Taussig has a doctorate from Fletscher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
