Tuesday 16 March 7:30 - 8:30pm
Government by the people is under threat, even here in New Zealand. Rising inequality, political distrust, rampant corruption, authoritarianism, and climate change threaten political communities world-wide. Why are democracies performing so poorly? How are these problems manifesting locally? What can people here and abroad do to revitalize democracy, and ensure a brighter future? This lecture addresses the underlying causes of democratic decline and proposes a series of reforms that would ensure greater integrity.
