Event description

Description

Experts from Europe and Canada address the issues of Democracy and its Futures.

While democratic ideals rest on the principle of free and equitable public dialogue and deliberation, contemporary Western democracies are experiencing deepening divisions and growing non-engagement in the public sphere amidst massive disinformation, in particular in social media.

This, as the world stands at the nexus of intensifying and intertwining crises of democratic, social, ecological, economic and earth systems. The panel discussion will address the conditions under which civic dialogue and democratic deliberation can be effective.

What forms should and could public debates take?

What role can academia and the media play in facilitating and reviving processes of public deliberation as a cornerstone of democratic practice?
