The Annual Members Conference: Democratic Futures
At this conference, speakers will analyse global democratic trends and whether the meaning of 'democracy' is changing.
- Is European democracy in crisis? To what extent have demands of financial markets undermined national democratic processes?
- Will the growth of far right and far left populist parties in Europe have an impact on democracy?
- What are the emerging models of democracy in the Middle East and North Africa and do they reflect a desire to be different from democracy in the West?
- Is the initial popular enthusiasm for democracy falling away in the countries of the former Soviet Union and if so, what factors might be undermining it?
Registration and breakfast will be from 08:45. The conference will be from 09:15-13:00.
This conference is held in association with The World Tonight, BBC Radio 4.
LIVE STREAM: Part of this conference will be live streamed, for members only. The live stream will be available here from 09:15 to 11:15 GMT on Friday 18 January.
