BIG IDEAS. SMART CONVERSATION.

Munk Dialogues

COVID-19 has fast-forwarded us into a confusing and uncertain future. Nowhere are the accelerating forces of the pandemic more evident than in our democracy. We are being challenged by rising authoritarian regimes, a reckoning on race, and intense debates on cancel culture, identity politics and free speech. The Spring Munk Dialogues explore the fate and future of democracy in a world remade by COVID-19. The live Munk Dialogues are available to anyone to watch. Archived versions are for Munk Members only. Membership is free, click HERE.
