Ctrl - Alt - Resetting Democracy in the 21st Century

Chaired by Margaret E. Ward, panellists Danny Dorling, Liam Kennedy, Elizabeth Day and Ivana Bacik discuss the fact that this is not a moment to take democracy for granted.
 
The 2016 emergence of Donald Trump, Brexit and populism in Europe didn't signal the start of something new. Rather, they announced a long simmering, troubling sense of powerlessness.
 
How did we get here? How are Western values shifting and how can government truly respond? How do we arrive at a point, once again at which people with ostensibly opposing ideological viewpoints have, in actual fact, more in common than separates them? And is it possible to have “too much” democracy?
