Shared October 12, 2016

Twenty-five years after the fall of Communism, there is a growing sense that representative democracies are going through a crisis of confidence. How deep is this crisis? Is it just a manifestation of lagging economy? Is it caused by the radical shifts brought on by digital communications? Or is it due to loss of trust in today's political elites? The Agenda looks at the future of liberal democracy with the 2016 CBC Massey lecturer Jennifer Welsh, author of "The Return of History: Conflict, Migration, and Geopolitics in the Twenty-First Century."
