The Department for European Policy and the Study of Democracy (DED) dedicates its work to issues of current and sociopolitical interest related to Europe and democracy.
The focus of our research lies on discussing terms, processes and theories with the aim to analyse and explain phenomena and developments within Europe. In doing so, we open up new perspectives and dwell on utopias.
Furthermore we regard dialogue with the public as one of the department’s most important tasks. For that reason our research findings are scrutinised by the media and accompanied by artistic interventions.
