Seminar of the Interdisciplinary research cluster "Democracy in the 21st century".

The pandemic has altered profoundly the way citizens and states interact. It has put into question not only daily aspects of life but also fundamental pillars of the democratic process, such as the conduct of elections. Essential to curb the diffusion of Covid-19, social distancing measures impede or even prohibit what until now seemed undisputed rights and liberties. How do democracies cope with these tradeoffs? What are the ingredients needed for the successful handling of the virus without deviating too far from well-founded democratic principles? In the inaugural seminar of the  Democracy in the 21st Century cluster, Adam Przeworski and Kalypso Nicolaidis will shed light on these questions as well as discuss the future of democracy after Covid.

Please register here by next Thursday 8 October. Registered participants will receive a link to access reading materials.
