Module overview

All over the world the ideal of democratic government has higher support than at almost any time in human history. Yet many citizens of democracies are very frustrated with the way the democracy they live in works. It is one thing to recognise the contemporary problems of democracy but another to know what to do about them. The aim of the module is to familiarise students with the best known tools for improving democratic governance, and to consider if and how democracy can be reinvented.
