UNCIVIL WAR - THE AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
On October 6th, the Bertelsmann Foundation released an hour-long documentary about the American presidential election - it will be exclusively shown here, together with a discussion about the state of the American democracy and the presidential election. Join this event to learn about the threats democracy is facing in America and how the country can deal with them.
The movie will be screened live on Youtube. You will receive a link to watch the movie at the start of the event, and a Zoom link to join the discussion afterwards hosted by Anthony Silberfeld and Kaj Thomsson.
