The Future of democracy Research

“Democracy is not a given – it requires daily dedication and effort. We recognize that true democracy thrives when all voices are heard and valued.” Executive City Councillor of the City of Vienna, Jürgen Czernohorszky, highlights democracy as a crucial pillar of society that can only function when all of its members, especially the marginalized and disenfranchised, are included in political processes.
