Posted on October 8, 2018

The Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy, in partnership with Perry World House, Fels Policy Research Initiative, Foreign Policy Research Institute, and Penn-Temple European Studies Colloquium, presents the “DEMOCRACY IN TROUBLE?” SERIES throughout the 2018-2019 academic year.

ARE YOUTH THE FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY? A DIALOGUE

Featuring:

  • Yascha Mounk, Harvard
  • Julia Mead, New York Magazine
  • Moderator: Nancy Cordes, CBS News

Thu. October 11 4:30-6:00 pm
The Forum (Room 250), 133 S. 36th Street
Ronald O. Perelman Center for Political Science and Economics

Globally, are young people democracy’s greatest hope — or are they the most willing to embrace authoritarianism? Yascha Mounk and Julia Mead assess how a new generation of citizens might hasten the populist overthrow of liberal democracy or, alternatively, revitalize it with a new egalitarian ethos.
