Skoll Series: Combatting the Authoritarian Playbook with Protect Democracy
The attacks of January 6th on the capitol felt like a wake up call to many. But Ian Bassin, a former member of the White House Counsel's office, noticed U.S democratic values deteriorating long before.
In 2017, Ian got in touch with scholars who had been studying democratic threats all around the world to more accurately predict what might lay ahead. He learned of the authoritarianism playbook and launched Protect Democracy to combat it. Today, Ian tells us how Protect Democracy has been working behind the scenes to strengthen our democratic institutions.
