At 4pm on Thursday, November 22, Timothy Snyder will deliver a lecture at Faculty of Arts, Charles University (Jana Palacha 2, Prague, room 131.
Across the globe, the tenets of democracy are under attack and the popularity of illiberal political forces is mounting. How much do these forces have in common? What motivates them, what tactics and rhetoric do they use, and what visions of the past and future do they rely on? The answers to these questions will help us think more carefully about the threats facing us today and formulate a way forward in a time of uncertainty. Timothy Snyder, the author of The Road to Unfreedom, will discuss the resurgence of authoritarianism and how we should respond with Czech political scientist Pavel Barša.
The lecture is co-organised by IWM, Vienna.
