Landecker Democracy Fellows debate the democracy crisis in the US

The violent storming of the US Capitol on 6th January shocked and stunned the world. The event was a dark moment in history and demonstrated how fragile democracies can be, even in a country traditionally viewed as a bastion of liberal values.

Led by Dr Judith Goldstein, Founder and Executive Director of Humanity in Action, the Landecker Democracy Fellows gathered to discuss these events and the implications that this assault on democracy – fuelled by conspiracy theories and former US President Donald Trump himself – had on the future of democracy in the US and around the world.

From the importance of tackling false information and conspiracy theories to how best to foster social cohesion and decrease polarization, the Fellows explored and shared what they believe is needed to call civil society into action, in order to protect and strengthen democratic societies in the future.
