The US Elections 2020: What Future for Democracy, Social Movements, and Human Rights?

While the final results of the US elections are not yet known, it is already clear that the Trump presidency was not an aberration in the democratic tradition of the US, but reflects a broader shift towards authoritarian politics that is also mirrored on the global scale. This panel discussion reflects on the domestic and international effects of these shifts on social movements, marginalized populations, human rights, and global peace-making. Together with renowned experts, we will explore the future of social justice, inclusion, and participation in the US and beyond under the conditions of populism, persistent white supremacy, and rising authoritarianism.
