30th anniversary of the collapse of the Berlin Wall Mira Milosevich: "The coming battles will be between liberal and illiberal democracy"

30/10/2019

Mira Milosevich is professor of International Relations and member of the FAES Board of Trusteed

30 years after the collapse of the Berlin Wall it has been demonstrated that there was no end of ideologies; neither was there an end of history. The collapse of communism did not mean an automatic victory for democracy, since democracy had won as a system of legitimacy but not as a immune system to other political alternatives. The coming battles will not take place, as during the Cold War, between capitalism and communism, but will be battles between liberal and illiberal democracy with geopolitical overtones.
