Doing and Thinking Democracy Differently

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the Centre for the Study of Democracy is organizing a conference to analyze contemporary challenges to the way we do and think democracy. 

We are delighted to announce Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak (Columbia University) as our keynote speaker.

Panels will reflect the diversity of work undertaken in CSD, including new protest movements in Europe, the undoing of the Arab Spring, exclusion in post-colonial democracies, populism in Africa, the practice of resilience, new forms of governance and digital politics, the ideal of transparency and the role of anti-democratic thinking in radical democracy.
