Addressing the theme of Democracy on Edge, Taylor and Chambers will engage in a wide-ranging conversation on the sources of sinking trust in democracy, and new directions to address contemporary challenges.

Beginning with the rise of 'populism' and what it means for democracy, they will also discuss the role of disinformation in our new digital landscape as well as institutional reforms to restore citizen trust.

The conversation will be moderated by Vassy Kapelos, Dalhousie alum and host of CBC's Power and Politics.
