The second DemocracyNet.eu workshop, “Participation, citizenship and democracy in Europe,” took place in Zurich on October 27-28, 2012. It aimed at looking closer into the role of citizens’ participation and democracy in Europe. The focus was on the relationship between (political) participation and democracy. More precisely, we considered the questions of the role of participation for the legitimacy and good functioning of the democratic process and of the tensions between participation and democracy.
DemocracyNet.eu is glad to announce that it will soon launch an event series at the University of Zurich on the theme Researching, Networking, Thinking Ahead: Democracy & Citizenship in Europe The event series is supported by the UZH Graduate Campus. Three academic workshops and three public events qill be organised during the 2012-2013 period. The opening event will take place on October 26, 2012.
