One of several videos from our highly successful ‘Leadership, democracy and hubris’, Research Café. This well-attended event, the fourth cafe so far, was organised jointly by the Daedalus Trust and the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster and was held Tuesday, 4 March 2014.
