Embracing Chaos: A Conversation with Brian Klaas about Chance & Democracy

How do the decisions we make influence the world around us? Does everything happen for a reason or do things just happen? Brian Klaas, an American political scientist specializing in democracy and authoritarianism, a contributing writer at The Atlantic, and associate professor in global politics at University College London, investigates these topics in his most recent book ‘Fluke: Chance, Chaos, and Why Everything We Do Matters.’

To hear why we should open ourselves up to uncertainty and how growing interdependence impacts democracy, join us on the 12th of March from 13:00 to 14:00 in the E-Hall at the Roeterseiland Campus.
