Recent developments, such as the rise of populism in Europe, Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, and polarized media coverage from the United States, are shaking assumptions about democracy and democratic practices. A study on political systems by Pew Research Center revealed that “there are reasons for calm as well as concern when it comes to democracy’s future.” The findings indicate that the American public is largely divided over democracy: 46% are satisfied with the way democracy is functioning, and 51% trust the government to act in the country’s best interests. Does our democracy remain strong, or is there cause for concern? In this program, experts examine the current state of democracy in the United States, Asia, and Europe, and ways to strengthen government amid dwindling public trust.

Speakers:
Sheri Berman, Professor of Political Science, Barnard College, Columbia University
Bruce Stokes, Director, Global Economic Attitudes, Pew Research Center
Keesha Gaskins-Nathan, Program Director, Democratic Practice-United States, Rockefeller Brothers Fund
