The International Association for Political Science Students (IAPSS) is recruiting members for the IAPSS Think Tank of 2015 – 2016, with the topic ‘Challenging Democracy’.
Democracy is at the heart of political science and practice in the 21st century. The topic of the Think Tank 2015 – 2016,Challenging Democracy, seeks a broad engagement with the practices, challenges and theories of democracy. The Think Tank aims at finding critical and imaginative answers to some of the core questions in current democracy research and will investigate the values and norms of democracy as well as threats to democracy and democratization processes. Thereby, it will also question and challenge democracy, democratic practices and democratic legitimization and their role in shaping the world in the 21st century.
