ONLINE: Direct Democracy and the Pandemic
  Cologne, DE Debate


Join us for our discussion series on Democracy in times of the Covid-19 crisis!

Countries around the world are facing an unprecedented challenge in dealing with the global outbreak of the Covid-19 virus. The measures being put in place, while often timely and necessary, have real and sometimes unanticipated impacts on our democratic practices and processes.

How has the pandemic influenced direct democracy around the world? Experts from Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and the USA join us for an interactive discussion.

We have been monitoring the measures that have been put in place and how they impact democracy in different countries. Through interviews and regular group calls, we have been discussing with democracy activists everywhere on the issues they experience, the problems they face and the opportunities they see for the future of democracy: https://www.democracy.community/forms/challenges-democracy-during-global-pandemic
