“Around the world today, a democratic revolution is gathering new strength.” Ronald Reagan asserted this before the British Parliament in 1982, arguing that authoritarian regimes were causing “an uprising of intellect and will against injustice and tyranny.” He challenged the West: “If the rest of this century is to witness the gradual growth of freedom … we must take actions to assist the campaign for democracy.”

The 2015 Ronald Reagan Symposium will explore how to assess the efforts of that era to promote liberty and today’s U.S. policy toward democracy and democratization. The Ronald Reagan Symposium is an annual event featuring nationally known scholars and is regularly featured on C-SPAN.
