This Monday at 4:30 PM (eastern time), I will be participating in a Huffington Post Live video discussion on democracy, constitutionalism, and their role in recent events in Egypt. I don’t yet know the exact parameters of the discussion or who the other participants will be (the organizers indicated that this article helped inspire them to address this topic). But I suspect I was asked to take part because of my recent post on how the situation in Egypt exemplifies tradeoffs between democracy and other liberal values. Perhaps also because of my forthcoming book Democracy and Political Ignorance. Interested readers can watch the discussion live at the HuffPost website.
UPDATE: A video of the discussion is available here. The other participants are Prof. Stanley Katz of Princeton, Zaid Al-Ali – an expert on constitutional design in the Arab world, and Daniel Landsberg-Rodriguez.
