  • Description

The name stands for the struggle for the democratic tradition in the USA in the 21st century: Jamie Raskin, member of the Democratic Party in the US Congress, expert in constitutional law and prosecutor in the second impeachment trial against Donald Trump.

At the invitation of the Fritz Bauer Forum in Bochum, Jamie Raskin talks about Trump’s failed coup attempt and how he experienced that day in Congress. The lawyer has written a very personal book about it, which is also the moving story of his son Thomas B. Raskin. Rep. Raskin’s lecture is about how conservative and far-right forces want to restructure the state apparatus and the judiciary in the USA. Is American democracy in danger?

Jamie Raskin’s book, Das Undenkbare. Trauma, Tatsachen und die Tücken der amerikanischen Demokratie. Translated into German by Nathaniel Horowitz and Karoline Ruhdorfer (Bibliothek Literatur und Menschenrechte, ed. by Irmtrud Wojak, Joaquín González Ibáñez and Holger Buck): BUXUS EDITION, 2023, ISBN 978-3-949379-09-3 is available to buy here.
