Denationalization of democracy


Democratic institutions have, historically determined, a strong nation state orientation. Globalization and denationalization increasingly challenge this orientation. Not only are decision processes shifted to a higher, international level with this, but also to a lower one, down to the regional and municipal arenas. The impacts of such processes are researched in this project group.
