Sponsored jointly by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the University of Toronto's Munk School for Global Affairs, the annual lecture is an important forum for discourse on democracy and its progress worldwide.Alfred C. Stepan is currently Wallace Sayre Professor of Government, Columbia University and the director of the Center for Democracy, Toleration and Religion at Columbia University.
