July 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

The decline of established political parties, media, and interest groups has opened the door to anti-democratic forces, posing new challenges for our democracies. This event will examine how Europe’s establishment parties are faltering and how the rise of social media poses new challenges on both sides of the Atlantic. What can be done to rebuild confidence and to increase citizen engagement to improve the effectiveness of our democracies?
