Illiberal democracies are electoral democracies in which power limiting principles of constitutional liberalism are undermined or conditional on national interests. Among these challenged principles are the rule of law, judicial independence, freedom of expression, legal protection of an individual’s autonomy, and a heightened threshold for constitutional amendment.
