A New Monarch in the 21st Century: Questions of Identity and Approval

To coincide with the coronation of King Charles III, this roundtable considers two important aspects related to the monarchy – public approval and the role of the monarchy in questions of identity.

In the discussion, the panellists will examine trends in public opinion, how monarchies can become symbols of shared identity in multi-ethnic societies, and how monarchies can be used as indicators of identity through the currency that we use.
