Extraordinary times call for extraordinary leadership, but as the planet warms and the pandemic persists, democracies are faltering and true accountability seems somewhat lacking.

Shalailah Medhora leads a panel of renowned journalists in a conversation ranging from how governments do (and don’t) take responsibility when things go bad to accountability in the face of reporting sexual misconduct and leaders’ divergent responses to COVID-19.

Ultimately, they ask: who’s in charge? And where does the buck stop? Featuring The Guardian’s David Marr, The Sydney Morning Herald’s Kate McClymont (Dead Man Walking), Four Corners’ Louise Milligan (Witness) and The Monthly’s Nick Feik.

This event is open captioned.
