In this Falling Walls Breakthrough Conversation, digital participants had the chance to engage in a live conversation with Lilia Moritz Schwarcz. She talked about her work as a historian and in anthropology in Brazil, how democracies can slowly become autocracies and what can be done to preserve democracies worldwide.

The interview series provided an intimate personal atmosphere, in which high-level guests, speakers and panelists of the Falling Walls Science Summit 2022 talked about their individual research, career paths and experiences.

The Falling Walls Breakthrough Conversations are supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and Springer Nature.
