Gordon Graham, Professor of Philosophy and the Arts at Princeton Theological Seminary, argues that democracy is overrated. "There is a relentlessness about the democratic process that eliminates all possibility of dissent despite the myth to the contrary."
Professor Graham's views will be challenged by Edward Lucas (European Editor of The Economist), Professor Robert Hazell (Director of the Constitution Unit at University College London) and Professor David Chandler (of the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster).
The live studio discussion is chaired by Edward Stourton. You can join in by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or text 84844.
