*Due to popular demand Professor Cameron has agreed to repeat his talk on November 5 at 7pm*

Burnaby Public Library is excited to present Professor Max Cameron, a world-leading expert on democratic theory and electoral design to help us understand the key issues related to BC’s referendum on proportional representation this fall.

Professor Cameron teaches comparative politics, constitutionalism, and democratization at UBC, where he also directs the Centre for the Study of Democratic Institutions. His research focuses on comparative democratization, constitutions, and the role of wisdom and judgment in politics. He is the author, most recently, of Political Institutions and Practical Wisdom (Oxford University Press, 2018).

Professor Cameron appears frequently in the media on issues such as electoral reform, campaign financing, and political ethics. His advice on democratic institutions and electoral reform is frequently sought out by governments, including with regards to the questions in the referendum this fall.

The referendum could reshape the political future of this province. Prepare yourself to vote by seizing this unique chance to learn about democracy, electoral reform and proportional representation from one of Canada’s most knowledgeable thinkers.

This presentation is sponsored by Burnaby Public Library and Fair Vote Vancouver.
