Topic: "Understanding the Rise of Illiberal Politics in Europe and the U.S. – And What to Do About It "
The decline of establishment political parties, media, and interest groups have opened the door to anti-democratic forces, posing new challenges for our democracies. This program will examine how Europe's establishment parties are faltering and how the rise of social media poses new challenges on both sides of the Atlantic.
Presented in conjunction with the World Affairs Council of America, the American Council on Germany and Atlantik-Brucke.
Dr. Daniel Ziblatt, Eaton Professor of Government at Harvard University and Director of the Transformations of Democracy Group at the WZB Social Science Center Berlin, and Pauline Frohlich, head of the Future Democracy Program at The Progressive Center in Berlin Germany discuss their perspectives.
