The aim of the conference is to discuss democracy in a multifaceted frame, but especially in relation to the many definitions, interpretations, forms and challenges (crisis) that are attributed to this phenomenon. The initial question we pose is: what meaning does democracy hold? We believe it to be a good starting point for theoretical as well as empirical considerations.

The conference will focus on the following subjects:

  • how to define and study “democracy” - an essentially contested concept – in theory and practice;
  • evolution of the meaning of democracy throughout history;
  • is democracy in crisis? – the how, where, and why;
  • how to teach and/or dissimilate knowledge (and meaning) on democracy beyond academia;
  • alternative forms of political participation and democracy, in particular the challenges associated with progressive digitization of social life;
  • political polarization and its importance for the future of democracy;
  • the changing balance of geopolitical forces and the future of democracy;
