Call for Papers: The Visio Journal Vol. 4

Authoritarian inspired public policies and legislation stand in contradiction to values and norms adhering to strong rule of law institutions, protected individual rights and freedoms, and limited government. However, sympathies and support for the authoritarianism among both political elites and the public across Europe are spreading and growing.

The next issue of The Visio Journal shall explore the question of whether liberalism is able to stand its ground against the backdrop of increasingly present authoritarianism in Europe.
