Our modern societies face a great number of challenges and crises. Unfortunately, politicians and representative governments seem incompetent or powerless to tackle these problems. Hence, diminishing confidence in our institutions.

As a response, right-wing populists and authoritarian regimes flourish across the world. Is democracy dead, or in danger? If it’s not too late, how do we reclaim and rebuild democracy in the 21st century?

Featuring Joel Westheimer (professor and University Research Chair in Democracy and Education at the University of Ottawa), Ethan Porter (assistant professor in the School of Media and Public Affairs, George Washington University), Malorie Flon (development director at the Institut du Nouveau Monde), Bernadette Clément (Mayor of Cornwall).
