Democracy to Dictatorship: How to Lose a Country

Democracy to Dictatorship: How to Lose a Country

Don’t miss a cracking bill of Turkish writer and journalist Ece Temelkuran, historian Tobias Straumann and journalist Simon Kuper as they discuss how both populism and nationalism can march fully-formed into government; including pressing questions about how far these twin philosophies are undermining democratic structures across the world and what citizens can do to respond. How do current economic trends feed into these developments? How does the position and politics of the UK and the US feed into this narrative? And what lessons can there be for Ireland? This will be an extremely provocative show and one not to miss. Hosted by Konstantin Kisin.
