Transatlantic Listening Series on Revitalising Democracy

Programme

Ditchley together with the Annenberg Foundation at Sunnylands in the US and Wilton Park (UK) have published a report on the three-linked discussions held during the summer of 2021 under the banner, the Listening Series on Revitalising Democracy. This series covered three areas that reveal some of the ways modern democracies are under pressure: the decline of local news; the difficulties governments have in delivering political consent for climate action; and how COVID-19 has fostered distrust in democratic institutions.  This report summarises those discussions and marks a moment in the perception of the challenges democratic institutions face.
