About This Event
Monarchs—whether cultural heads of states, religious figures, or heads of government—are seldom seen in the twenty-first century and often deemed a relic of the past. From the Gulf States and East Asia to Northern Europe, however, forty-four nations are currently governed by some system of monarchy. What is the role of modern monarchies in a rapidly changing world, and how do these vastly varying systems of government connect to issues of governance, democracy, and the rule of law? The Council convenes a panel of experts to discuss the surprising resiliency, and recent resurgence of, global monarchy.
