Workshop Nr. 2 - September 9, 2022

Welcome to the 2nd Workshop organized by the Democracy Research Network. The aim of the workshop is to greet new members, revisit past network events and bring us together to brainstorm and plan future network activities. This time, we will be kicking off the workshop with a fishbowl discussion, where we will be joined by a multidisciplinary group of democracy researchers to discuss the role of people in building a democratic society. After the workshop, we will have sponsored after-work drinks at Telakka!
