From voting to political parties to the international wrangle over Brexit, what is it that needs to change if our political systems and public debate are to be improved?

We will be discussing the nature of journalism, the rise of citizens’ assemblies, the transformations of the media, and the challenges posed by populist parties, and the growing divide between our politicians and the public realm.
