Since its origins, democracy has been a work in progress. Today, many question its resilience. The Bertelsmann Foundation and Humanity in Action have teamed up with Andrew Keen, author of How to Fix the Future, to launch 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.
In this episode, host Andrew Keen joins Amr Moussa, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Egypt. Moussa describes his two theories about the dynamics of the so-called Arab Spring: creative anarchy and the failure of Arab governments. Amr Moussa, currently Secretary General of the Arab League, believes that so much remains in crisis. Nonetheless, he is optimistic about the prospects of change in the 21st century.
