The scientific conference "Crisis of Democracy - Democracy in Crisis" is organized by the Sir Peter Ustinov Institute from 4th to 5th June 2018. The purpose of this year's conference is to shed light on the current crisis phenomena of representative democracy. The aim is to work out possible counterstrategies and to develop strategies for action. On the first day of the conference Manfred Nowak (BIM) will talk about "The influence of neo-liberalism on democracy and human rights". On the second day of the conference, workshops will be held parallely, focusing on the possibilities of political education as a counter-strategy. Thomas Krüger (Federal Agency for Civic Education, Bonn) and Patricia Hladschik (Zentrum polis) are co-hosting a workshop. The Conference is held in German.
