Challenges to Democracy in the 21st Century

The National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) Democracy was a multi-disciplinary research program on the challenges to democracy in the 21st century. The program examined two current developments which are fundamentally transforming democracy: globalization and the growing role of the media in politics, or “mediatization”. Launched by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the University of Zurich in 2005, the program came to a close in September 2017. A summary of the program's research results will be published in three languages in 2018.
