We are welcoming Prof. Daniel Ziblatt to our digital event to discuss the current state of democracy and its challenges. How resilient is the political system in the United States?
What do attacks on democracy look like and what can be done to strengthen political systems? We are looking forward to discussing these questions and more with Prof. Ziblatt.

The event is part of our cooperation series with the network of German-American Institutes and Centers in Germany, "Zukunft des transatlantischen (T)raums".
