1. THINKING ABOUT CHALLENGES
A) What are the challenges to democracy?
- Foundational Challenge => Foundational challenge of making the transition to democracy and then making the democratic government. This involves bringing down the existing no democratic regime, keeping military away from controlling government & establishing a sovereign and functional state.
- Challenge of expansion=> This involves applying the basic principle of democracy equally to all regions, different social groups & various institution. Most countries like India & other democracies like the US face this problem.
- Deepening of democracy=> This involves the strengthening of the institution & practices of democracy. Rich & powerful people should be kept away from taking government decision.
