A discussion with Chris Patten and Coline Covington
Hosted by Gerard Fromm

On 6th January 2021 more than 50 pro-Democracy activists were arrested in Hong Kong. That same day pro-Trump rioters stormed Capitol Hill in Washington, DC accusing the US Government of “stealing” the vote. The juxtaposition of these events raises questions about why democracy is under attack, what happens when people feel they have no voice and no future, and the growing appeal of authoritarianism. The most fundamental issue that confronts us is how liberal democracy will survive if it is attacked both from outside – from Russia and China for example – and from within.
