RegNet has kicked off its annual Conversation series event, which takes place during the month of October. It responds to the critical junctures emerging in the contemporary moment. how political and economic institutions across the world have been thrown into crisis by the spread of Covid-19. Leaders find themselves confronted by a series of critical junctures, moments of decision that will carry wide-ranging and long-lasting consequences for the basic structure of our societies. This year’s discussions aim to shed light on how processes of societal change that preceded Covid-19 have taken on new significance in this historical moment.
Power to Persuade generously gave us space to share some of the underlying thinking for the series and a summary of our first event in two extended blog posts:
- Critical Junctures: Opportunities and Threats for Democracies in the Pandemic by Jensen Sass and Kate Henne
- Big Tech, Data and the Public Good: Trade-offs and Harms by Jenna Harb and Kate Henne.
