Abstract

On 7 June 2007, the National Endowment for Democracy commemorated the twenty-fifth anniversary of the "Westminster Address" with a panel discussion and reception in Madison Hall at the Library of Congress. The panel discussion featured brief presentations by three eminent U.S. Scholars—Thomas Carothers, NED Board member Jean Bethke Elshtain, and Journal of Democracy coeditor Larry Diamond—and by two eloquent and thoughtful democratic activists, Anwar Ibrahim of Malaysia and Zainab Hawa Bangura of Sierra Leone. Their remarks include some interesting reflections not just on the past accomplishments and future prospects of democracy assistance but also on the new dangers confronting democracy itself.
