THE FUTURE OF ELECTIONS: WHO AND WHAT CAN WE TRUST?
A Conversation with the Executive Director of the National Institute for Civil Discourse, Carolyn Lukensmeyer
“As identity politics, partisan incivility, media, and special interests reshape both the country and the vote, this discussion considers the pivotal role of trustworthiness in maintaining a democratic society and whether elections as we know them have a future.”
Truth & Trust in the Global Scene (3 talks)

“In our current “post-truth” era of alternative facts and fake news, how do we maintain trust in each other, in our elections, in our journalists and media outlets, and in our governments and world leaders? How do we reclaim truth and rebuild trust? What will the future hold if we can’t? This fall, join the UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences for a series of discussions with national experts who will explore the current state of American truth, trust, and global relations.”
