Why do democracies fall apart and what can be done about it? A conversation with Natasha Lindstaedt (Essex) and Licia Cianetti (Birmingham).

In this seminar, Professor Lindstaedt and Dr Cianetti will discuss the causes of democratic decay in the modern world. Illustrating the integral link between public commitment to democratic norms and the maintenance of healthy democracies, the speakers will discuss the role of various factors in decaying democracies including economic inequality, corruption, a declining belief in political institutions, and populist and authoritarian discourse.

This POLSIS Seminar is organised in conjunction with the REPRESENT network.

All welcome. This seminar will be held over zoom, and a link will be sent to registrants prior to the event.
