Will Democracy Win?

Is the resurgence of populist and right-wing, nationalist demagoguery a threat to democracy? Join Tony Birch, Jeff Sparrow and Micah White as they discuss whether our system of government can survive these attacks to its integrity. Are we still convinced that democracy will spread around the globe?

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday 21 July. This session is able to be booked on a Festival Pass.
