Liberal democratic values have never been put under a more significant systemic series of tests. The concurrent dynamics of pandemics gradually turned into infodemics, domestic populism and destabilization campaigns, arbitrarily introduced and inconsistently legitimized emergency states, and rising revisionism of great powers all point to one thing. It is of the utmost importance to cultivate academic discourse on democracy and resilience. That’s all the more true within the European context, with the European Union trying to assert its significance, legitimacy, identity, and common future.
This workshop brought together a series of renowned experts who addressed a range of issues including fighting disinformation, the role of regulation, education/health/resilience nexus, and the significance of democratic cornerstones such as elections.
The final report including key recommendations is available here.
