The Despot’s Apprentice: Donald Trump’s attack on democracy
January 24, 2018 @ 18:30 - 20:00
Speaker: Brian Klaas (@brianklaas) is Fellow in Comparative Politics, Department of Government, LSE.
Chair: Jonathan Hopkin (@jrhopkin) is Associate Professor of Comparative Politics, Department of Government, LSE.
Donald Trump isn’t a despot. But he is increasingly acting like a despot’s apprentice. An expert on authoritarianism, Brian Klaas is well placed to recognise the warning signs of tyranny. He argues forcefully that with every autocratic tactic or tweet, Trump further erodes democratic norms in the world’s most powerful democracy.
Entry to the event will be on a first come, first served basis with no ticket required.
