Vices and Virtues of Decentralization: Challenges in European Multi-Level Democracies

25.11.2016 (All day) to 26.11.2016 (All day)
Location : 
A 5,6 Raum A 231
Type of Event : 

MZES Postdoc Conference organized by Dr. Thomas Däubler (MZES), Dr. Christian Stecker (MZES), Prof. Dr. Jochen Müller (Universität Greifswald, External MZES-Fellow)

The workshop brings together international scholars working on different challenges in European multilevel democracies. Whereas recent research has highlighted the virtues of decentralization for democracies, we will also reflect upon the challenges caused by multilevel structures (e.g. lower clarity of responsibility). Most importantly, we will analyse these challenges coherently across the entire chain of democratic representation from elections to policy-making.
