How can the US recover from the Washington DC riots?

Posted 11th January 2021

The Head of Carnegie Mellon University Australia Emil Bolongaita recently featured in Adelaide's daily metropolitan newspaper, The Advertiser, to share his views on how the US recovers from the January 6 riots in Washington DC.

Professor Bolongaita described the distressing scenes as the ‘gravest threat to democracy in the US since civil war ravaged the country more than a century and a half ago’.

“Already battling the health and economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, how the US responds to the recent assault on democracy will affect the trajectory of the rest of the world for years to come,” he says.
