On 24 February 2022, our panel was joined by Professor Jan-Werner Müller* to discuss his newly-released book, Democracy Rules (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2021).

As before, our panel included the leaders of our research project: Honorary Associate Professor Adam Czarnota and Professor Martin Krygier, both of the University of New South Wales, and Professor Wojciech Sadurski of the University of Sydney.
