Back to the Wild West with Kenneth Manusama

On March 5, 2024, the John Adams Institute is organizing a talk by Kenneth Manusama, international lawyer and America expert, centered on his new book Democratie van het Wilde Westen. The talk will take place on Super Tuesday, the most important day of the American primaries, and will be a deep dive into the weaknesses and instabilities of America’s democratic system. As November’s elections loom, legal, racial, and religious controversies are already stretching the country to a breaking point. But these troubling times demand that we look further: the very fate of democracy in America hangs in the balance.

Afterwards, Kenneth Manusama will be joined Dr. Markha Valenta and Manon Portos Minetti for a panel discussion. The evening will end with a preview of Boom Chicago’s comedy show, Politically Incorrect featuring Greg Shapiro and Pep Rosenfeld.

Date: March 5, 2024

Time: 8pm – 10 pm

Location: Rode Hoed, Keizersgracht 102, Amsterdam
