Democratic societies have long grappled with instability and unrest, but are we now standing at a crucial inflection point?

Join our speakers for a thought-provoking discussion about revitalizing democracy, drawing lessons from history and exploring global contexts beyond the United States. Discover the pivotal role that universities can play in fostering societies where diversity is celebrated as a strength rather than a source of division.
