Sir John Graham Lecture 2017 | Polls Apart

Reclaiming respect in a time of polarised politics

Now the initial jolt has worn off from “shock” election results around the world, it is time to ask: how can we repair the fabric of civility between people entrenched on opposite sides of political questions?

At the tenth annual Sir John Graham Lecture, Professor Jeremy Waldron addressed the many divides in contemporary political culture, and suggested a framework of civility that might enable political leaders and voters to maintain both our deeply held convictions and our humanity.
