Daniel ZiblattIs our democracy in danger? In the bestselling “How Democracies Die,” Harvard Professors Daniel Ziblatt and his co-author, Steven Levitsky —  who spent two decades studying the breakdown of democracies in Europe and Latin America — write that they believe the answer is yes. Democracy no longer ends with a bang — in a revolution or military coup — but with a whimper: the slow, steady weakening of critical institutions, such as the judiciary and the press, and the gradual erosion of long-standing political norms.

Ziblatt’s lecture will also be livestreamed.
