The Dismantling Democracy from Within Summer School advances the twin mission of understanding the critical challenges democracy is facing and developing the democratic agendas that will meet these challenges under variable cultural and socio-economic conditions. Such a mission can only be secured by facilitating a robust dialogue among students, activists, and scholars assembled from all over the world.

Applications are now closed. Once admitted, all costs related to participation will be covered by the organizers.
