Munich Dialogues on Democracy An Evening with Timothy Snyder on December 3rd, 2019

CAN THE UNITED STATES BE A FREE COUNTRY? PRESENT RISKS AND FUTURE CHALLENGES


Today in the United States as well as in Europe, we spend the present defending what is at risk, and the future appears chiefly as a threat. Yet the very idea of freedom, once central in democratic societies, depends upon a vision of the future. In this lecture Professor Snyder will address the deep threats to freedom, and the possibilities for a future with greater freedom.

Timothy ­Snyder, Levin Professor of History at Yale and a Permanent Fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences, Vienna, will explore and explain his latest research about current risks and perils in democratic societies, and possible solutions.
