Oligarchy in Today's World

Global stage
18. 7. 2019 15:30 - 16:30
What role do the elites play today and how do they relate to the society? Professor Winters is trying to understand the role of the super-rich in politics, and how they generally affect the lives of contemporary societies. The debate will grasp the crisis of liberal democracy, the growth of global inequalities, and the return of nationalism through the concept of oligarchy.
