STG Initiative

Transnational Democracy

The European University Institute's hub for teaching and research on issues of democracy beyond the state.

The STG programme on Transnational Democracy serves as the European University Institute's hub for teaching and research on issues of democracy beyond the state. It operates in close cooperation with the EUI interdisciplinary cluster on Democracy in the XXIst century, the European Governance and Politics Programme at the Robert Schuman Centre and the European and Transnational Governance Network, EUI.

The programme addresses a variety of issues:

  • The current transformations of democracy at the subnational, national, regional and global level and the relationship between these levels
  • The potential for democratising globalization and Europeanisation and for radical citizen empowerment
  • The implications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for democracy and the ethical implications that arise from the implementation of AI
  • To trace the role of national parliaments regarding the current transformations of the European integration process in the context of the broader transnational level
