The new global disorder and the rise of despotism

Presented by the EU Centre on Shared Complex Challenges.

There’s a widespread feeling that we’re living in times of a new global disorder that works in favour of the wealthy, media manipulators, populists, strategists of war and other anti-democratic forces. Prof John Keane analyses one of the most salient of these global trends: the birth of political regimes that are a serious alternative to the ideals and practices of power-sharing monitory democracy as we have known it during the past generation.

Date and time: Monday 17 July, 6.15pm-7.30pm
Venue: Doherty Institute Auditorium, 792 Elizabeth St, University of Melbourne
