2021: How to Repair Our Democracy: A Conversation Between Larry Diamond and Noah Feldman

For many American citizens, the recent years—and indeed, the recent election— have raised alarm bells about the very structural underpinnings of our democracy, something many of us took for granted, assuming constitutional and legal protections were always in place.

Join two of the country’s most respected authorities on democracy, LARRY DIAMOND of the Hoover Institution and Harvard Law Professor NOAH FELDMAN, as they dissect the constitutional stress test our revered founding document has endured, the safeguards we thought were in there—but are they?—and the weaknesses of our electoral system that need repairing to keep our system of participatory democracy alive and strong.
