Daniel Ziblatt is Eaton Professor of Government at Harvard University and director of the Transformations of Democracy group at Berlin’s WZB Social Science Center. He is the author of four books, including How Democracies Die (Crown, 2018), co-authored with Steve Levitsky,  a New York Times best-seller.

The lecture will discuss America’s contemporary democratic predicament is rooted in its historically incomplete democratization. Born in a pre-democratic era, the constitution’s balancing of majority rule and minority rights created still unresolved dilemmas. Placing the U.S. in comparative perspective, this lecture offers new perspectives on what should be “beyond the reach of majorities”– and what should not– making the case for a fuller democracy as antidote to the perils of our age.
