Democratic Competition: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Ian Shapiro discusses the varieties of political competition across the democratic world. He shows why efforts to reform political parties over the past several decades to make them more democratic have backfired, compounding voter alienation, undermining good governance, and empowering demagogues and other populists. He also explains what needs to be done to reverse the trend. This talk draws from his new book with Frances Rosenbluth: Responsible Parties: Saving Democracy from Itself (Yale University Press, 2018).

Starts: Dec 12, 2018 6:00:00 PM
