Doing Democracy? Democracy and Populism in the EU after the "Refugee Crisis"
The coping with migration has changed the political landscape: former socioeconomic cleavages have been substituted by a transnational one. This cleavage gives rise to potential anti-system parties and populists that share their fierce opposition towards integration and migration by challenging core dimensions of democracy: the guarantee of basic rights and freedoms, the general right to vote, and the requirement of consent to all legislation. The workshop will study today's patterns of conflict and coordination in the EU and discuss the effects of the refugee crisis on democracy – both within the member states and in the EU.
Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Daniela Braun (LMU), Daniel Kelemen (Rutgers), Christian Kreuder-Sonnen (WZB), Hanspeter Kriesi (EUI Florenz), Stefan Wallaschek (Bremen).
