Democracy - A short introduction
Learn more about the origins of Democracy at the Great Courses Plus: http://bit.ly/Learn-About-Democracy This is a 3 minute video to introduce the most basic concepts of a Democracy. Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens participate equally—either directly or indirectly through elected representatives—in the proposal, development, and creation of laws. It encompasses social, religious, cultural, ethnic and racial equality, justice, liberty and fraternity.

Collaboration: - Storyboard: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B80QLbZggGszcEE2N19EcjRlLVk&usp=sharing Please help us make this video better by collaborating on the scrip and storyboard. We're really looking forward to your comments :) === Video Script: Scene 1 The word democracy comes from the Greek words of “démos” which means “people” and “krátos” which means “power” or “rule”, So democracy basically means “the rule of the people.” Scene 2 Democracy first started as a direct democracy, in Greek cities, notably Ancient Athens, where people came together to speak about their concerns and opinions, in front of rulers of the city state, and directly voted on new rules and laws. Here is considered as the birthplace of democracy . Scene 3 So, For the very first time, decisions were made by the people instead of rulers... but sadly, the ancient greeks did not see all people equally. Slaves, women, children and the people who did not have a land weren’t allowed to vote. This is what we call a “flawed” democracy today. Scene 4 After the Greeks lost their power and influence in the first century AD, their early forms of democracy were also fading away until the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, which prevented the King of England to do whatever he wanted and said that even the King had to follow the country’s rules and laws which were written in the constitution. Scene 5 Today, most democracies are indirect or representative which means that you can’t vote for a new law yourself, but you can vote for people who then become law makers and present your interests. But democracy isn’t just about voting; it’s about everything to protect the best interests of the people, no matter what is their race, gender, political opinion, or religion. These interests can be human rights, quality of life, infrastructure and many more. Scene 6 Modern democracies divide powers into three different branches : the legislative (the people who make law), the executive (the people who make sure that you obey the law), and the judiciary (who judge you if you commit a crime). These three are independent and work following the process « checks and balances » which means all the work must be clear and fair. And, very important, the people who have power also must follow the law and not exceed their authority. Scene 7 In addition, a democratic government must work in a way that reflects the wish /feeling/desire and values of the society that it governs—this is also known as the « General Will », which is a concept developed by the famous Swiss philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Scene 8 One of the problems of democratic voting is that the biggest groups of people always have the most power and that’s why a good democracy also has laws to protect the rights of its smaller and weaker groups. A democracy where the majority chooses to separate, set apart, expel or injure its minority is not a functioning democracy! Scene 9 So, with those mentioned above, what do you think now about democracy? Winston Churchill once said: “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” Do you agree? === with love your MinuteVideos team https://minutevideos.com/

The 12 principles of good governance at local level
The video's aim is to raise awareness of the 12 principles of good democratic governance at local level. The 12 principles form one of the three pillars of "The Strategy for Innovation and Good Governance at Local Level", launched during the Ministerial Conference in Valencia, Spain, by European Ministers responsible for Local and Regional Government. In Council of Europe member States having subscribed to the Strategy, European local authorities who fully comply with the 12 principles can be awarded the European Label of Governance Excellence (ELoGE) -- represented by a 12-sided polyhedron - the dodecahedron. Currently Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Spain, Ukraine are working on the Strategy. The video was produced by the Council of Europe's Centre of Expertise for Local Government Reform as part of its Programme Strengthening the Capacity of Local Authorities in Ukraine funded by the Swiss and Danish governments.

What are the key features of a democracy?
Democracy is a broad concept. No two democracies are exactly alike. There are, however, certain principles that apply to all of them. We have summarised them as six ‘key features of democracy ‘, which are likely to provide respect for human dignity, freedom, equality, justice, good governance, peace and the opportunity to hold elected representatives accountable.

Democracy, Authoritarian Capitalism, and China: Crash Course World History 230
In which John Green teaches you about the end of World History, and the end of the world as we know it, kind of. For the last hundred years or so, it seemed that one important ingredient for running an economically successful country was a western-style democratic government. All evidence pointed to the idea that capitalist representative democracies made for the best economic outcomes. It turns out that isn't the only way to succeed. In the last 40 years or so, authoritarian capitalism as it's practiced in places like China and Singapore has been working really, really well. John is going to look at these systems and talk about why they work, and he's even going to make a few predictions about the future. Also, thanks for watching this series.

Once upon a time, local democracy
This video was produced by the Council of Europe's Centre of Expertise for Local Government Reform as part of its programme to strengthen local and regional government capacity in Ukraine, and was funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency - Sida. Its aim is to raise awareness of the importance of strong local government for enhancing the quality of local life. As the level of government closest to local communities, local government is often better placed for responding to local needs. They have a better knowledge of the local environment, the local people, their culture and traditions, as well as of any special geographical advantages or difficulties to be accounted for. Public services and administration organised at this level are often better adapted to the local context. The Centre of Expertise for Local Government is a body of the Council of Europe which supports member States in the delivery of good democratic local government. It was set up following a decision of the Heads of State and Government of the Council of Europe when they met for a third summit in Warsaw in May 2005. Through this initiative, Council of Europe member States recognise the on-going importance of decentralisation and the essential role of effective local authorities in a sound democracy. The Centre responds to the challenge of building up the capacities of local authorities -- and their Associations -- to be able to provide good leadership and deliver local services to European standards.

Political Ideology: Crash Course Government and Politics #35
So today Craig is going to look at political ideology in America. We're going to focus on liberals and conservatives and talk about the influencers of both of these viewpoints. Now, it's important to remember that political ideologies don't always perfectly correspond with political parties, and this correspondence becomes less and less likely over time. So, sure we can say that Democrats tend to be liberal and Republicans tend to be conservative, but we're not going to be talking about political parties in this episode. It's also important to note, that there are going to be a lot of generalizations here, as most peoples' ideologies fall on a spectrum, but we're going to try our best *crosses fingers* to summarize the most commonly held viewpoints for each of these positions as they are used pretty frequently in discussions of American politics.

13 Colonies: Colonial Governments & English Influence
This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-And-Social-Studies-Academy This lesson teaches students about colonial governments in the 13 Colonies. Students will learn about the English influences on colonial governments including: The Magna Carta, the English Bill of Rights, representative democracy, and English Common Law. Students will also be introduced to The Enlightenment and how philosophers like John Locke, Montesquieu, & Rousseau influenced the Founding Fathers. Students will learn how the earliest settlers took these ideas and put them into practice with the Mayflower Compact and the House of Burgesses. We will look at how colonial governments were controlled by the king and parliament with a look at the different types of colonies and colonial governments: Royal, Charter, and Proprietary and the impact this had on the colonist’s access to self-government and democratic principles. Students will finally learn about the importance of Town Meetings and the rising tensions with the British. Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics and Social Studies Academy’s lessons, this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans, worksheets, smartboard files and activities, are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. As a social studies teacher, I have often looked for good YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens.

History and Principles of the Democratic Party - Alonzo Hamby
Political parties, neither mentioned in the Constitution nor foreseen by the Founders, arose almost immediately and have, generally speaking, served the nation well. The two-party system as we know it today dates to the 1850s. This first CCA of the 2016-2017 academic year will consider the origin and development of the party system, as well as the history, principles, and current state of the Democratic and Republican parties. Alonzo Hamby is an author and Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History at Ohio University.

The Constitution, the Articles, and Federalism: Crash Course US History #8
In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is. Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode.Founding Fathers debated over how to govern the new nation, beginning with the Articles of Confederation: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/articles-of-confederation When the Founding Fathers finally wrote the Constitution, they realized that they needed to add The Bill of Rights to get citizens on board with the new government: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/the-bill-of-rights Follow us: http://www.twitter.com/thecrashcourse http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen http://www.twitter.com/raoulmeyer http://www.twitter.com/crashcoursestan http://www.twitter.com/saysdanica http://www.twitter.com/thoughtbubbler Support CrashCourse on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crashcourse

Judicial Review: Crash Course Government and Politics #21
Today, Craig Benzine is going to tell you about the Supreme Court's most important case, Marbury v. Madison, and how the court granted itself the power of judicial review. Judicial review is the power to examine and invalidate actions of the legislative and executive branches. It happens at both the state and federal court levels, but today we're going to focus primarily on the court at the top - the Supreme Court of the United States. Now it's important to remember that the court has granted itself these powers and they aren't found within the Constitution, but as with the executive and legislative branches, the courts rely heavily on implied powers to get stuff done.

Democratic Principles for an Open Internet
The Democratic Principles for an Open Internet have been primarily designed for citizens and civil society organizations in fragile and emerging democracies, who are new to the digital rights space, are beginning to engage more regularly online, and who may be more likely to encounter deliberate internet disruptions as a result of government interference. These principles are a grassroots effort to adapt the Internet Rights & Principles Coalition's 10 Internet Rights and Principles from a democratic lens to empower and improve the digital rights literacy of activists and civil society organizations in the Global South. We hope this guide will help activists working for democracy in an internet age and connect them in global peer networks to exchange best practices. The guide also serves as an advocacy tool that organizations can utilize in pushing governments, the private sector, and civil society to adhere to universal human rights through open internet principles and standards.
From Liberty to Democracy: The Transformation of American Government
Featuring the author, Randall G. Holcombe; with comments by Dennis Coyle, Catholic University of America; and Joseph Romance, Drew University. From Liberty to Democracy traces the evolution of American government and its fundamental principles. At the nation's founding, the principle underlying American government was liberty, and the nation's new government was designed to protect the rights of individuals. By the end of the 20th century, American government had been transformed, and public policy was designed to further the will of the majority. According to economist Randall Holcombe, this change has produced a government that is larger and broader in scope than intended by the Founders. Join us for a lively discussion of the fate of liberty in a political world dominated by majority rule.

Global Governance ..into the Future | David Held | TEDxLUISS
Global governance is failing when we need it most. The paradox of our times is that, as global problems become more complex and threatening, our global institutions lose their force as organizing frameworks for inter-state cooperation. Starting from the Lorenzetti’s painting “The Allegory of the Good and the Bad Government”, David Held, Master of University College, Durham and Professor of Politics and International Relations at Durham University, explains what are the reasons for such gridlocks. David Held is Master of University College, Durham and Professor of Politics and International Relations at Durham University. Among his most recent publications are Gridlock: Why Global Cooperation is Failing (2013), Cosmopolitanism: Ideals and Realities (2010), Globalisation/Anti-Globalisation (2007), Models of Democracy (2006), Global Covenant (2004), Global Transformations: Politics, Economics and Culture (1999), and Democracy and the Global Order: From the Modern State to Cosmopolitan Governance (1995). His main research interests include the study of globalisation, changing forms of democracy and the prospects of regional and global governance. He is a Director of Polity Press, which he co-founded in 1984, and General Editor of Global Policy.

Bureaucracy Basics: Crash Course Government and Politics #15
This week Craig Benzine discuses bureaucracies. Bureaucracies tend to be associated with unintelligible rules and time-wasting procedures, but they play an important, though controversial, role in governing. From the FDA to the EPA, these agencies were established to help the government manage and carry out laws much more efficiently - to bring the rule making and enforcement closer to the experts. But the federal bureaucracy (which is part of the executive branch) has a lot of power and sometimes acts likes Congress in creating regulations and like the courts through administrative adjudications. It's all a bit problematic for that whole "separation of powers" thing. So we'll talk about that too, and the arguments for and against increased federal bureaucracy.

Direct Democracy and a Constitution of the People
Constitution of Direct Democracy: The reasons for a fully democratic government, based directly on the public will; the Constitution of a such a system of government; and how this can be achieved smoothly from existing systems Basic Principles: All people share the needs of survival, and of dignity, justice and freedom. These shared values forge the common will, which can therefore best guide our future. This common will is implemented by Direct Democracy, based on the shared drive for survival, and on the decency, goodness and common sense of most people. These common values, reflected through direct democracy, can best secure our human future. Public Government: In the model Constitution, society is governed entirely public polls and referendums, from local communities to a nations and Several "case histories" illustrate public decisions on moral issues, economics and international policy. In the critical times to come, the communal wisdom, expressed by Direct Democracy through this model system, is our best guide to a secure future. The Constitution: Transition to Direct Democracy can be achieved easily under the current systems by electing Direct Representatives with this pledge : "On every major issue, I shall poll my constituents and vote strictly as instructed by the people."

Foreign Policy: Crash Course Government and Politics #50
Today Craig finishes up our series on U.S. Government and Politics by talking about both the least and most important aspect of government: foreign policy. Foreign policy is important because it has the potential to affect the largest number of people, but at the same time, it tends to play a minimal role in our perception of the government (unless we’re at war). Foreign policy addresses diplomacy, security, human rights, economics, and the environment at a global scale, and we’re going to talk about how our government has approached each of these policies in the past and which it tends to hold most important. As with all things political, the decisions made in fulfilling these policies can be pretty controversial, especially when considering that the President often has the last word in these issues. We hope this series has helped you better understand the way the U.S. government works and hopefully encouraged you to participate in the political process - here or wherever you may live. Thank you so much for watching!

Madam Speaker, it looks like Turkish President Erdogan has brought his brutal crackdown on human rights to Washington, D.C. For years, Erdogan has attacked Turkey’s democratic institutions, undermined the rule of law, and violated Turkish civil liberties. On Tuesday, several bullies violently assaulted protesters outside the Turkish Embassy here in Washington. These Gestapotype body guards beat peaceful demonstrators, in one case kicking a woman lying on the ground. This type of behavior is unacceptable. Erdogan is becoming a Turkish dictator. One of the traits of a dictator is to violently quash opposition. He is showing he doesn’t believe in the democratic principles of free speech and peaceful assembly. But, Madam Speaker, we will have no foreign tyrant violating these sacred rights on American soil without consequences. And that is just the way it is.

Mid of audience 13. Wide of speakers leaving 14. Wide of news conference STORYLINE International election monitors said Monday that Kazakhstan's parliamentary election failed to meet the fundamental principles of a democratic vote. The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) said in its assessment of Sunday's election that the vote lacked the conditions needed for genuine competition. According to preliminary results, President Nursultan Nazarbayev's Nur Otan party won 80.7 percent of the vote. Two other parties: the business-oriented Ak Zhol, which avoids confrontation with the government, and the People's Communist Party, got slightly more than 7 percent of the nationwide vote each, clearing the threshold to enter parliament. That ends the total control of parliament once held by the president's party, but concerns remain that the legislature will still not be a forum for real debate. "The results of the election, including the presence of two parties apart from the state party, can be described as an orchestrated action," said Miklos Haraszti, the head of the OSCE/ODIHR (Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights) observation mission. A more combative Communist party with a higher public profile was suspended by a court for six months in October for violating the law on public organisations, thereby ruling out its participation in the elections. Another party, Alga, which has distinguished itself with its unwavering criticism of the Nazarbayev government, has routinely been denied registration. Nur Otan has benefited from its association with Nazarbayev and overt state support. Positive factors noted by the OSCE were the competent administration of the election and legislation ensuring that at least two parties would enter parliament. Nur Otan had held all the elected seats in the previous 107-member parliament. However, the monitoring mission said in a statement that the vote counting was not transparent. "Unfortunately, we have seen a tightly controlled campaign environment in which the electoral rights of the citizens were seriously limited," said Haraszti The OSCE also reported its observers detecting at least a dozen cases of ballot-box stuffing Kazakh authorities have tried hard to convey the impression of a fully competitive and transparent election.

Thomas Jefferson & His Democracy: Crash Course US History #10
In which John Green teaches you about founding father and third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson is a somewhat controversial figure in American history, largely because he, like pretty much all humans, was a big bundle of contradictions. Jefferson was a slave-owner who couldn't decide if he liked slavery. He advocated for small government, but expanded federal power more than either of his presidential predecessor. He also idealized the independent farmer and demonized manufacturing, but put policies in place that would expand industrial production in the US. Controversy may ensue as we try to deviate a bit from the standard hagiography/slander story that usually told about old TJ. John explores Jefferson's election, his policies, and some of the new nation's (literally and figuratively) formative events that took place during Jefferson's presidency. In addition to all this, Napoleon drops in to sell Louisiana, John Marshall sets the course of the Supreme Court, and John Adams gets called a tiny tyrant. Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. Thomas Jefferson is remembered as the Founding Father responsible for saying all men are created equal in The Declaration of Independence: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/the-declaration-of-independence Jefferson didn't always practice what he preached though, as seen in his mixed views on American Indians: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/excerpts-from-thomas-jefferson-s-writings-on-american-indians Follow us! http://www.twitter.com/thecrashcourse http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen http://www.twitter.com/crashcoursestan http://www.twitter.com/raoulmeyer http://www.twitter.com/thoughtbubbler http://www.twitter.com/saysdanica Like us! http://www.facebook.com/youtubecrashcourse Support CrashCourse on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crashcourse

24. Democratic Justice: Theory
Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) Professor Shapiro takes up again Schumpeter's minimalist conception of democracy. When operationalized as a two turnover test, this conception of democracy proves far from minimalist, yet people often expect other things from democracy, like delivering justice. Although people experiencing injustice under other types of governments often clamor for democracy, they become disillusioned with democracy when a particular regime fails to ensure greater justice for society. However, societies are also unwilling to swoop in with a scheme of justice that has not been democratically legitimated. Professor Shapiro proposes an approach that synthesizes both democracy and justice and pursues them together. His theory of democratic justice has several features which he outlines: (1) it rests on a broad conception of politics, (2) it is semi-contextual, (3) it distinguishes between superordinate and subordinate goods, and (4) embodies two dimensions of democracy, which are (a) collective self-government grounded in the principle of affected interest, and (b) institutionalized opposition and presumption against hierarchy. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Launch of the Protecting Politics reports
**This video is a recording taken from the livestream of the event** The nexus between organized crime and politics is a growing global concern that affects new as well as established democracies, as it erodes the very principles of democratic governance such as rule of law, equal exercise of citizenship rights, responsiveness and transparency. Political corruption is the preferred tool for illicit networks to advance their businesses. In spite of this, the global comparative knowledge of the relations between organized crime and politicians remains limited, particularly policy-oriented analysis about their nature and dynamics. International IDEA’s Protecting Politics project and Money in Politics initiative aim to address this gap. As part of these projects, International IDEA conducted further thematic research regarding specific areas of democratic governance particularly affected by organized crime, focusing on the topics of elections, political parties, local democracy and service delivery. These respective four topics are the focus of the four reports produced in partnership with the Clingendael Institute and the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime. Two pre-launch events in The Hague and Geneva preseded this final launch in Stockholm at International IDEA’s headquarters on 29 November 2016, bringing together the four reports into one comprehensive discussion.
