Join our panel on the eve of the US presidential elections. The topic of discussion will be democracy. Some say it´s on stake.
With the fall of the Berlin Wall, democracy swept across nations; Western democratic rule had bridged the cultural and political divide once and for all. The East was going to become like the West.
Today, democracy is being undermined in Hungary and Poland, global powers like China and Russia have not joined the democratic ranks at all, and in the US – the standard-bearer of liberal democracy – Trump critics say authoritarianism is around the corner.
Is it really as bad as some people claim, or are they crying wolf?
Listen to our panel who will check the pulse of democracy:
Ivan Krastev, political scientist and author whose books about democracy include The Light that Failed and After Europe
Jan Teorell, political scientist and democracy researcher, one of the founders of the democracy database, V-Dem
Karin Svanborg –Sjövall, previously head of the liberal think tank, Timbro, writes about populism
Pippa Norris, political scientist and democracy researcher, author of books such as Cultural Backlash: Trump, Brexit, and Authoritarian Populism
The moderator is radio journalist Lars Mogensen
