Diagnosing the main problems and challenges for UK democracy and suggesting solutions.

"Illegal campaign spending, increases in hate crimes against (especially female and ethnic minority) politicians, opaque government contracts, fake news, and social media echo chambers and hidden advertising. These are just some of the threats that our UK democracy faces right now. And then there is Brexit. And Russia. And old chestnuts like the first past the post system and the voting age.

On the brink of Brexit, we ask: Is British democracy broken? Join us as Caroline Molloy (Open Democracy) and Michela Palese (Electoral Reform Society) assess the state of UK democracy and share their thoughts about how to fix it.

Join Zoom Meeting on Wednesday 11 November, 7pm.
