The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs presents

Anne Applebaum, Yale alum and  Pulitzer-prize winning historian and staff writer for The Atlantic:

Twilight of Democracy: The Seductive Allure of Authoritarianism.”

Register here.

Why is liberal democracy under siege while different forms of authoritarianism are on the rise? How do we counter the allure of nationalist authoritarians at home and abroad?
The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs will host an online discussion with Anne Applebaum about her newest book, Twilight of Democracy, which explores why so many people across the world have abandoned liberal democratic ideals in favor of strongman cults, nationalist movements, or one-party states—including in the United States.

The discussion will be moderated by Tamar Gendler, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Vincent J. Scully Professor of Philosophy and Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Sciences.

The event will be recorded. A link to the video will be posted to Jackson’s website: https://jackson.yale.edu/jackson-virtual-event-recordings/
