Join a talk by Atlantic's Pulitzer Prize winner & NYT best selling author Anne Appelbaum on US & global democracies and the lure of authoritarianism.
BOOK: Twilight of Democracy:The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism (July 2020)
Hosts: Jews United for Democracy & Justice and Community Advocates
Date and time: Wed, January 26, 2022 @ 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM PST
Pulitzer Prize winning historian, journalist, commentator on geo-politics and keynote speaker, Anne Applebaum examines the challenges and opportunities of global political and economic change through the lenses of world history and the contemporary political landscape.
Informed by her expertise in Europe and her years of international reporting, Applebaum shares perspectives on, and the far-reaching implications of, today’s volatile world events. And as technology allows a new scale of media manipulation to authoritarian governments and changes the tenor of political discourse, she scrutinizes the misinformation, propaganda, and criminal exploitation that influence global affairs, as well.
From Syrian refugees to Putin’s disinformation narratives, from the EU and the European financial crises to responding to terrorism, from solutions to transition-government corruption to political populists’ game-changing campaign language, Applebaum provides both background and up-to-the-minute insights that are vital to understanding the risks and opportunities of today’s world political and economic climate.
