Workshops

Our academic workshops aim at fostering interdisciplinary exchange, collaboration and team work among democratic studies researchers. All workshops are dealing both with theoretical and empirical research questions in the field of Democracy and Citizenship.
In line with the idea of connecting  academic discourses that have been running in parallel, we welcome contributions (current research and research projects) from different perspectives and disciplines and both from DemocracyNet members and external participants.
