The event series “Democracy: Bridging facts and Norms” has come to an end!
Thanks to the financial support of a Graduate Campus Grant from the University of Zurich, six public and academic events took place between November 2015 and October 2016. Please find a recap of the entire series as well as videos and reports of each event here: http://democracynet.eu/activities/events15-16/
The organizers of this series, Alice el-Wakil, Lea Heyne and Lukas Peter, are also extremely grateful to all the speakers who took part of in this year, to Karima Bousbah, Antoinette Scherz, Rebecca Welge and Doreen Spörer-Wagner for encouraging them to prepare this events series, to Daniele Caramani and Francis Cheneval who supported their application, to Lisa Brun for her administrative support, to Christoph Laszlo who designed the poster, to all their colleagues, families and friends who helped them planning, designing, and advertising our events, to Institut Zukunft and Denknetz who cooperated with them on two events, to the NCCR Democracy and the Centre for Democracy Studies in Aarau for diffusing their events, to all the University of Zurich staff who helped us with organizational and technical matters, and to the many people who joined us for the workshops and public events. Thank you!
Knowledge Transfer Award 2016
DemocracyNet.eu is very happy to announce that the organizers of the series were awarded with the NCCR Democracy Knowledge Transfer Award for “Democracy: Bridging Facts and Norms”. This award recognizes special achievements in transferring knowledge gathered in NCCR research into society, targeting non-academic groups.
The organizers of this series want to thank the NCCR Democracy for this award, which would again not have been possible without the help of all the people mentioned above.
While the event series is over, the podcast channel “Democracy: Bridging Facts and Norms” will continue to be updated.
