The 16th James S. Palmer Lecture Welcomes: Richard H. Pildes

Sustaining Democracies in the Age of Fragmentation

Political fragmentation is a defining challenge of our era. As traditional political landscapes continue to shift, fissures emerge, giving rise to diverse ideologies, movements and perspectives making it difficult for democratic governments to function effectively. Democracies no longer seem able to deliver on the urgent issues citizens care about most. 

This lecture explores the reasons for this pervasive dissatisfaction and the potential remedies.
