Description: 

Drawing on the his scholarship, especially from his book How Democracies Die, Dr. Ziblatt will focus on the sources and consequences of polarization, particularly in the current political climate. In How Democracies Die, Ziblatt and co-author Steven Levitsky use decades of research and a wide range of historical and global examples, from 1930s Europe to contemporary Hungary, Turkey, and Venezuela, to the American South during Jim Crow, to show how democracies die and how ours can be saved.
