IPSA Colloquium 2020, Online

Disruption, Crisis, Opportunity: Whither Democratic Governance? December 14-15 2020

December 14, 2020 - December 15, 2020
09:00 - 17:00

This conference will examine the challenges faced by democracies and non-democratic regimes in the light of a sequence of interrelated political, economic, and social disruptions.

Over the past two decades, European societies have experienced a series of disruptive events to what was at the time considered the regular way of life: Covid-19, global financial crisis, increasing global population mobility, and 9/11 to name a few. How have international organizations, national, regional, local level authorities responded to acute challenges, and have these actually made a difference? How have democratic institutions responded to citizens’ needs?

The colloquium is open for participants without papers; you must register in order to receive the event link.

Organized jointly with the IPSA RC14 Politics and Ethnicity, RC28 Comparative Federalism and Multilevel Governance, RC13 Democratization in Comparative Perspective, RC08 Legislative Specialists, RC30 Comparative Public Policy
