The International Forum for Democratic Studies at the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) has translated many of its publications about emerging global challenges to democracy into Arabic, Chinese, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
With these translations, non-English speaking partners across the globe can better understand how authoritarian influence, information integrity threats, transnational kleptocracy, and emerging technologies can blunt democratic progress. In addition to NED’s civil society partners, these publications will benefit regional journalists in non-English media outlets, members of the private sector, government officials in non-English settings, and other supporters of democracy worldwide.
Featured topics include:
- Identifying responses to authoritarian influence across borders in the sectors of media, economics, technology, and education and research.
- The psychological dimensions of disinformation, the latest civil society tactics to counter its spread, and analysis of PRC- and Kremlin-led influence operations.
- Authoritarian reputation laundering by corrupt officials in Europe and Uzbekistan, the impact of sanctions on Russian kleptocrats and oligarchs, and lessons for activism from the Biens Mal Acquis trials in France.
- The global impact of AI surveillance and the implications for democracies of all kinds from the digital authoritarianism practices by China and others.
- In Portuguese, you can read essays on reputation laundering and counter-kleptocracy activism, as well as research from the Journal of Democracy.
- In Chinese, you can read analysis about Chinese-language disinformation networks on Twitter.
On webpages devoted to four of these languages, you’ll find newly translated Forum publications; translated materials from NED’s partners such as the National Democratic Institute, the International Republican Institute, and the Center for International Private Enterprise; and links to foreign language research on transnational authoritarian influence by powerful regimes in virtually every corner of the world (housed in the Sharp Power Research Portal).
