Democracy, along with many of our cherished ideals, is in peril. Only half of voters take part in elections, and recent trends indicate that people are becoming more and more comfortable with authoritarianism.

Join us for a conversation about salvaging democracy, and what happens if we don’t.
Featuring Professor Adrienne Christiansen, political science, and Minh Ta ’97, Vice President, Global Government Affairs at The Carlyle Group in conversation with President Brian Rosenberg.
