The Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy is actively involved in the “Democracy Week” that is promoted every year by the Geneva Chancellery of State.
This year’s theme is “Democracy and alter-democracy”. We will explore political participation and civic activism outside the formal institutional realm, addressing questions such as: Why are citizens taking to the streets to hold governments accountable instead of using only the ballot box? How can voice be mobilized and heard in soft authoritarian regimes that are the new face of elected majoritarian governments worldwide?
