The Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation and the John & Pat Hume Foundation present this webinar debate. How critical is ethical and respectful political discourse to the future of democracy? To the future of Europe? To building reconciliation locally and globally?

What policy and regulatory frameworks and what policy initiatives and networks support more ethical and respectful political discourse? How can ethical and respectful political discourse be the norm and what role do political parties, civil society and the media have in this regard?

Speakers from the EU, US and UK will share their experiences and knowledge and lead a discussion on how to strengthen democracy and the conditions for reconciliation through the practice of ethical and respectful political discourse.
