Disruption, Crisis, Opportunity: Whither Democratic Governance? December 14-15 2020
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. https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/disruption-crisis-opportunity-whither-democratic-governance-tickets-131603747351
