Oct. 13: Law, Order, Justice, and Democracy

This panel will explore the myriad challenges to the rule of law in the United States — from racial bias in everyday policing and criminal justice, to the perceived politicization of federal law enforcement and the judiciary, to the breakdown of Constitutional checks and balances —  and how they threaten democratic legitimacy.

Oct. 20: America In The World 

Explore the global context of the United States at this particular moment and the implications of the political choices we face, covering topics ranging from the future of a liberal world order and the return of great power competition, to how and why hostile foreign states seek to corrupt our democratic process, to how to effectively manage transnational problems such as the global pandemic.

Oct. 27: Information, Misinformation, Disinformation

This panel will consider the role of the media in the 2020 election.  It will explore developments such as how the collapse of the news cycle, the rise of social media, the fragmentation of audiences into self-selected partisan silos, and the delegitimization of the press as an independent and nonpartisan source of information hamper the ability of the press to operate as a check on political power and sustain a broad-based and civic dialogue about our common future.

Nov. 10: America Voted. What’s Next?

Moderated by President Sean Decatur. Details to come.
