MUNICH DIALOGUES ON DEMOCRACY PRESENTS:
A CONVERSATION WITH JAN-WERNER MUELLER
Roger Williams Straus Professor of Social Sciences, Professor of Politics, Princeton University
Trump is a symptom, not the cause of the trouble experienced by the US. The talk takes us back to basic democratic principles and argues that we need to understand what has gone wrong with the two institutions which, ever since the nineteenth century, have been considered crucial for making representative democracy work: political parties and free media. A number of concrete ways to rethink and re-design these institutions are offered.
