Democracy in Action

Professor David Runciman asks if the long relationship between our government and the voters has irrevocably broken down.

The crisis around Brexit has revealed limitations in the relationship between representatives and represented. In these three programmes David Runciman explores that relationship -- between MPs and voters -- and looks for ways that democracies can take up the challenges of the present.

In this programme David Runciman takes a closer look at the meeting point between MPs and voters.

Featuring Chris Bryant, William Hague, Peter Macfadyen, Meg Russell, David Warburton and Daniel Zeichner.
