The world's democracies are not working well, and every attempt to start a new one seems to end in extremists fighting for power. LIFE AFTER DEMOCRACY is about reversing the rise of violence, and making YOUR voice heard. The new way forward begins with the extraordinary experiences of a Geneva-based intermediary, who has worked with some of the world's most hated dictators and their opponents. His initiatives have helped a number of countries to escape from oppression and the same direct approach shows how today's rise of conflicts and extremism can be reversed. The clear and practical conclusions have already won support from leaders on the right and left wings of politics, and certainly they can appeal to the millions of ordinary people who want their countries to turn in a new direction.
