"Democracy. What is it and do we want it?"

Thu 18 May 2017, 6-7.30pm The Diamond (Lecture Theatre 8), 32 Leavygreave Rd S3 7RD

Various groups have claimed to be the champions of democracy, 'rule by the people'. Angie Hobbs asks who are 'the people', what really constitutes 'rule' by the people, and how does democracy differ from demagoguery? She argues that democracy is genuinely under threat, and why, for all its faults, it is nevertheless vital to preserve it.In association with University of Sheffield Festival of Arts & Humanities. A Festival of Debate event, hosted by not-for-profit social enterprise Opus Independents (which also publishes the Alt-Sheff "Localcheck" column in "Now Then" magazine).
