Governance In An Emerging New World: Stability In An Age Of Disruption

Tuesday, May 14, 2019
Hauck Auditorium, Hoover Institution, Stanford University

Communications technologies, demographics and the movement of peoples, and climate change are combining to place enormous pressure on democracies and the rule of law, both here in the United States and around the world. The panelists will discuss the impact of these disruptive forces on democratic systems, what can be done to strengthen governance, and how we might learn from when technological and social changes have challenged the capacity of democratic governments in the past.

The Hoover Institution hosted a public panel discussion "Stability in an Age of Disruption" on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 from 4:00pm - 5:15pm PST.

Moderator: Deborah Gordon, Center for International Security and Cooperation
