Why This Debate and Why Now?
Public trust in governments is near historic lows, as confidence plummets and belief in institutions’ basic fairness and functions erodes each day, according to global studies. Three quarters of all governments are mistrusted by their citizens. How can we restore trust? Or should we not? Should we move trust to new social initiatives and technologies instead of the old formal bodies of government?
Three experts will tackle the topic of trust on November 12, 2019, with live digital voting and audience participation. Mark your calendar and join the debate now @DohaDebates with the hashtag #DearWorld, and let us know how much trust you have or can possibly have in your governments.
Three speakers, three perspectives. Each invited speaker presents a view and opinion on a possible solution to a world challenge.
