Lecture Series: Conflict, Violence, and Democratic Politics in the US and Abroad

Democracies around the world are facing challenges of radicalization and ideological polarization. Harassment and threats against elected officials, hateful rhetoric and violence against minorities, and the normalization of extremism by once mainstream actors have become commonplace.
