2012 Plenary 4: The Good Guys? The Special Burden of Democratic Nations

How will the rise of democracies like Brazil, Turkey and India change this conversation? Policymakers and journalists convened in this panel to cast new light on these questions and discuss how effective international institutions can be in resolving such conflicts.
