Democracy Day – “Democracy on Trial”

Friday 24 March 2017

The MAC, 10 Exchange Street, Belfast BT1 2LS

As part of the Imagine Belfast Festival and hosted by the Northern Ireland Open Government Network, this fun event will explore the state of democracy post–Trump and Brexit.

This event will take the form of a show trial that puts Democracy in the dock to consider whether it’s guilty of failing people in the UK, the US and across the world.

As part of the event we’ll have:

  • A Judge or Presiding Magistrate to oversee and direct proceedings
  • A Prosecution Team and a Defence Team, each with the opportunity to call and cross–examine 3 witnesses to help make their case
  • A Jury, made up of the Audience who will deliver the Verdict:

Is democracy as we know it still the best system of government available? Or is it no longer fit for purpose and broken beyond repair?

The event will start with a wine reception at 16:00
