In this podcast Emma Crewe, Richard Axelby and Beth Worku-Dix reflect on their Deepening Democracy Project, which has focused particularly on politically fragile countries through the creation of the Global Research Network on Parliaments and People. Undertaken in collaboration with the Forum for Social Studies (Addis), Setaweet (Addis) and Enlightened Myanmar Research Foundation (Yangon), the research has been supported by the Global Challenges Research Fund through the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The discussion is expertly moderated by Dr Benjamin Bowles.
