Parliamentary Democracy in Europe – 8th edition
This summer program applies research-based knowledge and professional expertise to the actual contexts where Parliaments in Europe and beyond are facing an unprecedented decline in their legitimacy and ability to address constituents’ demands and concerns. Electoral rules and dynamics at large are key to understand consensus formation, problems affecting political participation and the strengths and weaknesses of parliamentary decision-making.The program aims to explore the tension between representative democracy, elections and new forms of populism in a time where democracy is more and more often associated just to the electoral moment and to popular consensus thereby neglecting the significance of other accountability mechanisms and of the daily enforcement of the values of liberal constitutionalism. These are the challenges ahead also with a view to the 2019 European elections, the new European Parliament and the European Union itself.
