Lecture synopsis:

This lecture will explore the state of British democracy and identify the practical ways in which democratic participation can be renewed and revitalised in the 21st Century.

Katie will reflect on seven years at the helm of the Electoral Reform Society, an independent organisation campaigning for a better democracy in the UK. She will present a series of democratic innovations that could help bridge the gap between people and politics at a time of alienation and declining trust in politicians and political institutions.
