Swiss Summer School on „Democratization in a Globalized and Mediatized World”

St. Gallen

The 2017 Summer School will focus on chances and risks for democracy and democratization in an increasingly interconnected world. It aims to enhance theoretical, empirical and methodological insights into one of the thorniest territories in social sciences: How political systems become and remain democratically governed, and how democratic institutions become and remain socially embedded.

The overarching topic will be addressed in five sessions:

  • Global democratic governance
  • Democratic diffusion
  • Social movements in complex media ecologies
  • Democratic socialization and attitude change
  • Development assistance and natural resource revenue

Detailed information and the application form are available at the Summer School's website
