Invitation: Rainer Bauböck; “Who has a claim to inclusion in a democratic polity?” - November 8, 2018, 10-11:30 am, C40.704

08. Nov

Democratic equality, as Iris Marion Young among others maintains, entails a “principle that everyone whose basic interests are affected by policies should be included in the process of making them”. Yet, who has a claim to inclusion in a democratic polity and based on what principles remains an open empirical and theoretical dispute.

Rainer Bauböck, who has a chair in social and political theory at the European University Institute in Florence, is one of the world’s foremost scholars of citizenship, migration and democratic inclusion. On Thursday, November 8, 2018, we are honored to welcome him as keynote-speaker in our workshop that is part of the Center for the Study of Democracy’s (ZDEMO) “Democracy under Stress” PhD programme. While the workshop itself is limited to our Ph.D. students, we would like to invite faculty members and others with an interest in democratic inclusion to attend the keynote between 10-11:30 am in C40.704.

If you have further questions do not hesitate to contact Prof. Dr. Sybille Münch.
