Foreign Policy’s Democracy Lab, a special section focusing on global democratic transitions, recommended research by Adam Tiouririne of Logos in its September 8 Weekly Brief.

“A new analysis by Adam Tiouririne, for the Logos Consulting Group, finds that states whose names tout democratic principles are often the least democratic,” writes Prachi Vidwans, assistant editor for Democracy Lab. The brief, which is e-mailed each week to thousands of policymakers, strategists, and thinkers in international affairs, is available on and in PDF format.
