Research question

Against the background of social and technological change, how can democracy in Europe be made more responsive?

Democracy in Europe functions at multiple levels: the local or regional level, the national level, and the European level. It also functions differently in different EU member states, which have a range of different political systems. But it has been argued that, across Europe, democracy has become less responsive to the demands of citizens. Some see the rise of “populism” as a response to this situation. What changes should be made to the way that democracy functions in Europe to make it more open, inclusive, accountable and transparent?
