Event Details:

Join us for a seminar with Dr. Amit Kapoor moderated by Dr. Richard Dasher to discuss his newly published volume, Graphic Images.

Register in advance for this meeting:

Graphic Images is the third volume in the Disrupting Democracy series. If a picture is truly worth a thousand words, Graphic Images, a new publication from the Bertelsmann Foundation and the Institute for Competitiveness, puts that adage to the test. Through carefully constructed algorithms, more than 10,000 data points are transformed into a compendium of infographics that analyze four seismic shifts in democracy. From the U.S. to the U.K., India to Brazil, this third volume of the Disrupting Democracy series takes you on a unique journey into the causes and consequences of democratic volatility, and offers important clues on how to pull back from the brink.
