S1E4: Can Lib­er­al Democ­ra­cies Right the Wrongs of Racial and Gen­der Injustices?

We have recent­ly seen mil­lions of peo­ple tak­ing to the streets to protest social, polit­i­cal and envi­ron­men­tal injus­tices. Even a glob­al pan­dem­ic couldn’t stop pro­test­ers across the world from show­ing their sup­port to the Black Lives Mat­ter move­ment. In this episode, we’re joined by Pro­fes­sor Nan­cy Fras­er (The New School) and ask: can lib­er­al democ­ra­cy pro­vide the dis­trib­u­tive jus­tice cit­i­zens seem to crave?
