CURSE & CHARM OF AUTHORITARIAN LEADERSHIP

Event date: 24. September 2020

For some time now we have been observing a worldwide trend towards structures and systems that are contemptuous of democracy. Authoritarian structures are forming everywhere. They obviously exert a great attraction. This is both irritating and frustrating. Is something changing there, historically speaking, that we no longer expected after the collapse of totalitarian systems in Europe?  Do we still believe that democracy can solve the major ecological and socio-political issues such as energy system transformation, migration, unjust distribution of wealth, combating gang crime, etc.?

System failure is followed by system competition with quasi-competing social models.  Are authoritarian systems only successful in the short term or can they generate real benefits in the long term? Is it sometimes important to exert pressure, to show your teeth, to move a threshold or to show limits. Do we see parallels between the big political stage and the organisations we work in? When have we personally experienced authoritarian leadership and systems? How have we experienced them? As a curse & chimera or useful and downright charming? What predictions can we make from all these observations?
