11.30am - 12.20pm | Saturday 14 July

Trust in institutions has been falling for decades (think Brexit, US election). But one institution retains our trust: the jury. It offers us what may be our last best hope for democracy by allowing a new form of activism, capable of detoxing the worst about our current state.

Do we belong here?

11.30am - 12.20pm | Saturday 14 July
