Democracy: Are We a Brittle Twig or Supple Bamboo?

Sponsored By: The International Leadership Association





Featured Guest:

Matt Qvortrup

As a political scientist, Matt studies democracy – its evolution, and particularly how democracies decline.  He shares his perspective on the rise of populism across the world, how that leads to un-democratic leaders, then answers the question, “Is American democracy a brittle twig or a supple bamboo?”  He offers solutions, too; every strong democracy in history thrived on disparate points of view – and leaders who welcomed diverse opinions.
