Gesprächsleitung: Prof. Dr. Susan Neiman, Potsdam
What are the possibilities for progressive politics in an age of austerity?
How do we make a politics of equality succeed in an age of inequality?
How do we create a politics of confidence and faith in a time of fear and doubt?
These are questions that the late Tony Judt explored in Ill Fares the Land and in a lifetime of fearless political commentary.
These are the questions Michael Ignatieff, former leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, historian, essayist and writer, will try to answer in his lecture.
