Since its origins, democracy has been a work in progress. Today, many question its resilience. The Bertelsmann Foundation, Institute for Canadian Citizenship, and Humanity in Action have teamed up with Andrew Keen, author of How to Fix the Future, for Season Three of How to Fix Democracy: a video and podcast series exploring practical responses to the threats facing democracies around the world. Host Andrew Keen interviews prominent thinkers, writers, politicians, technologists, and business leaders who enlighten and challenge us as we seek the answers to How to Fix Democracy.
Season 3 Episode 15 entitled “Democracy delivering results” commemorates the International Day of Democracy by featuring Danilo Türk, President of Slovenia and currently President of Club de Madrid, who together with host Andrew Keen sat down for a review of the challenges facing democracies around the world today.
