TD21 - Transnational Democracy in the 21st century

Democracy and public identification with its values and practices face profound challenges today. We assess historical and current understandings of democracy to provide the insights for re-building the legitimacy and credibility of democratic institutions and the social contract that sustains them. Our focus is on democratic challenges related to patterns of interaction between states and on the role of supranational institutions like the EU with regards to democracy.
