Democracy Drinks: Extremism & The Future of Democracy
- Date: 24 November 17:00 - 19:00
- Location: The Hague Humanity Hub
For our latest edition of the Democracy Drinks on Thursday 24 November, we are delighted to welcome our special guest Charlotte McDonald-Gibson, journalist and author of the 2022 book Far Out: Encounters With Extremists. Charlotte will kick off the drinks by discussing the threat extremism poses to democracy, and how dialogue can help us address the underlining causes of radicalisation, and create space for redemption in today’s polarised societies.
#DemocracyDrinks were launched in 2018 by Defend Democracy Executive Director Alice Stollmeyer. Over time, #DemocracyDrinks have expanded their reach and have been organized in Aarhus, Berlin, Brussels, Budapest, Copenhagen, Kathmandu, Montreal, The Hague and Washington DC, and soon also in other cities. The events attract a lively mixture of people from NGOs, international institutions, think tanks, national governments and representations, academia, public affairs consultancies, social businesses and other active citizens.
