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.
This episode of How to Fix Democracy features Humanity in Action’s dear friend Carol Anderson, Chair of the Department of African American Studies at Emory University. Carol Anderson discusses the deep flaws in American democracy and why she is still hopeful for the future.
