John Clark on Democracy: where it came from and where it is going to


NEXT MEETING ON-LINE VIA ZOOM at 7:30pm on 20th July 2021


The talk will briefly chart the evolution of democracy and the institutions necessary for it to function. It will explore how these foundations have been shaken in recent times by the growing complexity of political discourse, the swing to fervent nationalism and the emerging dominance of social media.  And it will discuss the relevance of civil society in redefining democracy for the times we live in and for shoring up these foundations. It will present a personal take on these issues from someone whose career has focused on the roles of civil society in development, governance and holding the powerful to account.    

Joining instructions will be circulated to circle members before the meeting. People wishing to join the circle may submit their request using the contact form
