Governing in Crisis: Preserving Democracy, the Rule of Law, and American Values.

The University of Pittsburgh Institute of Politics and The Dick Thornburgh Forum for Law and Public Policy are proud to announce the launch of Governing in Crisis: Preserving Democracy, the Rule of Law and American Values. The series is intended to help both policymakers and interested citizens, whatever their positions or political leanings, to better understand the important governance issues that seem to be arising all to frequently. It is offered in the hope that we will emerge from the Covid-19 crisis not only with our economy restored and with our basic values intact, but on a committed journey to an even better America.

It is in times of crisis that people most need the support and protection of government. However, it also is in times of crisis that even core values can be sorely tested and that leaders are most likely to try to unilaterally expand their power. Through interviews with scholars, elected officials and other civic leaders, host Mark Nordenberg, Chancellor Emeritus of the University of Pittsburgh, will examine governance, health, and economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chancellor Emeritus Mark Nordenberg interviews Ken Gormley, President of Duquesne University, to discuss "The Constitutional Framework."

This virtual meeting link will be live HERE on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. for you to enjoy!
