LIAS FELLOW
Democracy and Civil Society
(2019)
It seems that democracy has lost its efficiency and legitimacy. This feeling contrasts sharply with the expectations of 1991 at the end of the Cold War. In the social sciences, democratization processes were a rapidly growing field of expertise. Twenty-five years later, the situation has been reversed.

A healthy public debate about important societal challenges requires a common and scientifically sound basis.
