In our second episode, Democracy As We Know It: Going, Going, Gone, we take a look at how current events, specifically the Brexit, can be seen as catalysts for larger shifts in the way government works. We also examine possible aspects of that future bureaucracy, and we find out in some cases — that future is already here.

Guest Speakers in this episode:

  • Cat Tully– Director, School of International Futures – discusses how the Brexit could signal the end of a political system and why democracy’s short-term focus doesn’t work in today’s volatile world. If the United Kingdom and other countries are witnessing the end of democracy as we know it, what will replace it?
  • Mallory Barg Bulman – Director of Research and Evaluation, Partnership for Public Service – examines trends, opportunities, and challenges for agencies in the US Government. Agencies are working hard to understand their customers and how to effectively communicate with different generations within their customer base – Baby boomers, Generation X, and Millennials.
