Challenges to Democracy during the Corona Crisis

Resilience and Adaptation: Life After the Corona Crisis
The pandemic is challenging democratic institutions and practices all around the world. Governments have an obligation to respect the basic rights of citizens in uncertain times – but are they? Join Stefan Kornelius and Kori Schake for a conversation about how democracies respond to this unprecedented crisis.

Stefan Kornelius has been Foreign Editor of the German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung since 2000. In his reporting career, he has covered Germany's Christian Democratic Party (CDU), the chancellorship of Helmut Kohl, and defense issues in Europe. From 1996 to 1999, he served as the paper's Washington correspondent.

Dr. Kori Schake (1999 ACG Young Leader) is the Director of Foreign and Defense Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). Before joining AEI, she was the Deputy Director-General of the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London.
