        <p>Considered by many people as the best and most successful political system, democracy, particularly in the last decade, has been the object of fierce criticisms. The question whether democracy is in crisis is in fact constantly being raised by philosophers, political scientists and normal citizens alike. <br/>Thus, this seminar aims at raising fundamental questions about democracy and its claimed crisis:<br/><br/>-	Foundation and justification of democracy:  On which principles, values and assumptions does democracy rest? <br/>-	Demands of democracy: What does democracy require as a political system? Which formal rules and framework? Which skills and behaviour from citizens? What does democratic citizenship mean? How should an education to democracy look like and what would it require?<br/>-	Limits and criticisms of democracy: How to understand the contextual and principled criticisms against democracy? How does democracy respond to those criticisms? Is populism a symptom or a cause of a crisis of democracy?<br/>-	Alternatives to democracy: Is there a way beyond democracy? Or does democracy need to be reformed?</p><!---->
        <p>Presentations, reading assignments, discussions and a written examination.</p><!---->
        <p>No prior knowledge required. But participants should have a genuine interest in the topic of democracy.</p><!---->
