Democratic Situations book launch (online and Copenhagen)

Book launch: Democratic Situations

Edited by Andreas Birkbak & Irina Papazu. Published by Mattering Press, May 2022.

Democratic Situations places the making and doing of democratic politics at the centre of relational research. The book turns the well-known sites of contemporary Euro-American democracy – elections, bureaucracies, public debates and citizen participation – into fluctuating democratic situations where supposedly untouchable democratic ideals are contested and warped in practice. The empirical cases demonstrate that democracy cannot be reduced to theoretical schemes of conflict, institutions or deliberation. Instead, they offer an urgently needed renewal of our understanding of democratic politics at a time when conventional ideas increasingly fail to capture current events such as Brexit, Trump and Covid19.

The book is available open access and in print via

Come celebrate the publication with us!
