In this lecture Katie Ghose explored the state of British democracy and identified the practical ways in which democratic participation can be renewed and revitalised in the 21st Century.
Katie reflected upon seven years at the helm of the Electoral Reform Society, an independent organisation campaigning for a better democracy in the UK. She presented 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.
