If a picture is truly worth a thousand words, Graphic Images, a new publication from the Bertelsmann Foundation and the Institute for Competitiveness, puts that adage to the test. Through carefully constructed algorithms, more than 10,000 data points are transformed into a compendium of infographics that analyze four seismic shifts in democracy. From the US to the UK, India to Brazil, this third volume of the Disrupting Democracy series takes you on a unique journey into the causes and consequences of democratic volatility, and offers important clues on how to pull back from the brink.
For this third edition of the series, Bertelsman Foundation decided to turn everything you’ve come to expect from Disrupting Democracy on its head. Rather than looking at the impact of technology on democracy, this volume will use technology to help us better explain democracy in the 21st century. Through the use of carefully constructed algorithms by our partners at the Institute for Competitiveness, we have collected data points that are the driving forces behind the volatility in democracy today. We’ve taken more than 10,000 data points and converted them into a compendium of visualizations that provides a degree of depth that will take you well beyond any written analysis.
