In September, Berlin will become the capital of literature: 140 authors from over 40 countries are expected to attend the 23. internationales literaturfestival berlin. From September 6–16, 130 events will take place. Literature enthusiasts will have the opportunity to meet their favorite authors and discover exciting new voices during readings and presentations.

Democracies in Danger?

Democracies are under immense pressure. The number of liberal democracies is decreasing worldwide and the approval of democracy in supposedly consolidated countries is falling. How well can democratic systems cope with this? How can they retain their ability to act, how resiliently can they deal with challenges, which also include phenomena such as climate change and digitalization? Armin Nassehi, Luisa Neubauer and Lora Anne Viola will discuss the concepts, infrastructures, and institutions that are needed for this.

In cooperation with the Zentrum Liberale Moderne and the Cluster of Excellence Contestations of the Liberal Script (SCRIPTS).

Hosted by Rainald Manthe.
