Cambridge Conversations: Can our faith in democracy survive the pandemic?
Thursday 6 May 2021, 5.30pm to 6.20pm BST
Recent history has seen apparent cracks forming at the seams of traditionally stable democracies, with faith in democracy – and indeed, in the institution of government itself – ebbing and flowing. The disruption of the past year, in almost every aspect of society and across the globe, appears to have compounded political division and doubts about the process and very idea of democracy.
David Runciman, Professor of Politics and International Studies, with panellists Dr Lucia Rubinelli, Junior Research Fellow in the History of Political Thought at Robinson College and Dr Roberto Foa, Co-Director of the Cambridge Centre for the Future of Democracy, had a dynamic panel discussion about the current state of democracy internationally and its future in a post-pandemic world.
