First invented by the Greeks in 5th Century BC, democracy has grown to be a very appealing form of government for many countries in the world. While the idea of democracy was different from present-day democracy, the core concept of a rule by the people with a system of which citizens have the power to participate in decision-making remains somewhat true. Author Dr Diego Fossati discusses the evolution of democracy and what it means in this region of the world on the Breakfast Grille.
