Is Democracy in Crisis? Hans Kundnani on Democratic Backsliding – CG, 16.02

  • Young people’s faith in democratic politics is lower than any other age group, and millennials across the world are more disillusioned with democracy than previous generations were at the same age. The extent to which democracy can be seen as under threat is very much up for debate.

Hans was speaking at the launch of the Common Futures Conversations challenge on democratic backsliding, which is taking place throughout February 2021.
