The Mirage of Democracy in Madagascar: 19:00, Wed 26 June 2019, London

In addition to celebrating Madagascar's Independence Day, Dr. Brian Klaas will give a talk. Madagascar's politics are defined by volatility. Its political system is riddled with corruption and abuses of power. And its elections do matter, changing who ends up in the presidential palace every few years. But is it really a democracy? Or is it just the shell of a democratic system, with all the trappings to make it seem legitimate abroad? In this talk, Brian will explore why Madagascar's political system is so vulnerable to coups, so plagued by corruption - and what it might mean for Madagascar's future.

Brian Klaas is an assistant professor in global politics at University College London and a columnist for the Washington Post. He first started researching Madagascar's politics as part of his doctoral research and has since conducted seven field research stints on the island, including as an election monitor. He has written several reports about Madagascar for the International Crisis Group and the Carter Center, advised western governments about Madagascar's security and political sphere, and also advised multi-billion dollar private sector companies on investing on the island. He has written three books: The Despot's Accomplice, The Despot's Apprentice, and How to Rig an Election. He holds a DPhil and MPhil (Oxford) and a BA (Summa Cum Laude) from Carleton College in Minnesota.

The ticket price for the evening event includes a free bar and delicious Malagasy buffet. There will be a chance to chat with the speaker and mingle with others to chat about Madagascar before and after the lecture.
TIME: Doors open at 18:30 for a 19:00 start.
VENUE: Access to the Upper Vestry Hall is at the back of St George's Bloomsbury in Little Russell Street. It is near Tottenham Court Road and Holborn underground stations.
