Taking it to the people: A world of referendums
Referendums are meant to take political decisions straight to the people. All around the globe, governments seek to make important decisions for their countries once the voters have had their direct say in a matter. But are referendums always fair, or can they be used as tools to manipulate outcomes? In this episode of 360 View, we dive into referendums both present and historical, and examine how referendums as a tool are growing in popularity all over the world. Host Scottie Nell Hughes sits down with Dr. Richard Albert, Professor of Government at the University of Texas, after an extensive report by international correspondent Roxana Solano.
