    How do different countries tackle threats to democracy through hate speech on social media? Are the threats posed by far-left populism to liberal democracy distinct from those posed by far-right populism? What are the important differences and similarities behind the Brexit vote and the election of Trump?

    The Institute's Yascha Mounk and Hans Kundnani discuss with Heidi Tworek, a non-resident fellow of The German Marshall Fund of the United States and assistant professor at the University of British Columbia.
