Yascha Mounk: Is Liberal Democracy in Crisis?
Sponsored by
Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust

Throughout history, liberal democracy has been placed at risk when groups either dominate a society or become increasingly divided. In a multicultural world, how do we build common ground? Academic Yascha Mounk is known for critical thinking on the rise of populism and his latest book, The Great Experiment, analyses our current crisis. In a nuanced conversation with Allan Little, he offers practical advice on how we can achieve stable democracies.

Yascha Mounk is appearing remotely.
