Event description

Description

In the past year various groups with opposing aims have claimed that they are the champions of democracy, ‘rule by the people’. In this talk Professor Angie Hobbs asks who are ‘the people’, what really constitutes ‘rule’ by the people, and how democracy differs from demagoguery. She argues that democracy is genuinely under threat in 2017, and gives reasons why, for all its faults, it is nevertheless vital to fight to preserve it.

In collaboration with Festival of Debate.
