Mind the Gap: NL Fulbright Thanksgiving Dinner with Marc Chavannes, November 28

Parliamentary democracy has long been considered the superior choice for people’s freedom and economic well-being. The sustained crisis that is hitting the West is breeding profound doubt about n the invincibility of ‘democratic capitalism’. Inequality is rising to levels that may undermine civil societies. Are our systems of public decision-making still up to the task?  Can we still believe our Parliaments and Congress to be the highest authorities in the country?  Do these authorities have the public or special interests in mind?

Marc Chavannes, emeritus Professor of Journalism, political columnist and international correspondent will address these issues at the 2013 Thanksgiving Fulbright dinner.
