VOtIng Citizens and the Ethics of Democracy

Project description

The role of citizens in representative democracies

The role citizens play in democracies today has emerged as a topic of debate in modern societies. The function of democracies is conditioned by the relationship between citizens, the political parties and elected representatives. The political behaviour and will of citizens expressed through voting, as well as the kind of competence citizens should have (the knowledge and skills they need to make informed decisions), is instrumental for the functioning of representative democracies. The EU-funded VoiCED project will inquire about the role citizens should undertake in the democratic system and whether the citizens of today’s democracies have the required competence to act successfully.
