Is there any reason to think that Trump’s defeat signalled the beginning of the end of populism, or do the underlying causes continue to linger? Democracies worldwide are exercising vigilance while seeking the best paths to restore dialogue among citizens and re-prioritize common sense and rationality at the heart of national politics – which is easier said than done.

Keynote speech: Nadia Urbinati (Columbia)

Discussants: Lisa Anderson (Columbia), Seyla Benhabib (Yale), Craig Calhoun (ASU), Carlo Invernizzi (CUNY).

Moderator: Patrizio Fondi (ResetDOC)

 

This event is being organized in anticipation of the conference cycle on Restoring Dialogue and Deliberation to Democracy to be held in collaboration with the Italian Academy at Columbia University in Fall 2021. It is one of two round tables held over Zoom in May and June 2021.
