Challenges to Democracy in a Shifting Global Landscape: India?s Neighborhood Perspective

Soumya Ranjan Gahir

Abstract: The past decade has served as a crucible for democracies worldwide, challenging established norms and practices. The United States, long hailed as the pinnacle of thriving democracy, has faced a confluence of issues akin to those plaguing many third - world nations. As anti - globalization sentiments surged due to economic, socio - political, and territorial contentions among nations, accompanied by a surge in protectionist tendencies, the functional essence of democracy has encountered setbacks demanding urgent redress. This paper concentrates on the South Asian region, particularly India's neighboring countries. Through comprehensive analysis, it seeks to elucidate and appraise the elements catalyzing the erosion of democracy in third - world nations such as Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar. This examination facilitates a deeper grasp of the evolving political dynamics within the South Asian precinct. Furthermore, the study evaluates the repercussions of prolonged regional instability on India and outlines potential pathways for India to foster democratic stability within the region. The paper focuses on comprehending the ramifications of neighboring (un) democratic governance and the intricate interplay between smaller (un) democratic nations and their larger counterparts. By investigating the systemic erosion of democratic values and principles in the region, this study provides theoretical insights grounded in empirical findings.
