Democracy Debate: What Comes Next?

Caroline Lucas, Laurie Penny, Diane James, Adam Tickell, David Runciman with Polly Toynbee

Following the Brexit vote and the election of Donald Trump, the rise of the right in Europe and the refugee crisis, Western societies are looking more polarised than ever. Is the system capable of tackling the real economic and environmental threats we face? And what comes next?

Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee chairs a panel of top thinkers and politicians to debate the future of our political system including Caroline Lucas MP, Diane James, formerly UKIP leader elect and now independent MEP for the South East, the New Statesman columnist and author Laurie Penny Vice Chancellor, University of Sussex Adam Tickell, and David Runciman of the University of Cambridge.
