The State of Democracy Lectures Series is dedicated to providing a forum for meaningful dialogue over public issues that cut across the disciplinary boundaries of the social sciences. The series is a centerpiece of the Maxwell School. It enables the intellectual exploration of current events and issues while fostering discussion and debate, which is the heart of meaningful democratic citizenship.
