Investigating elections' legitimacy
Voter turnout rates have dropped in European, national and regional elections. They are keen to avoid participation and several groups of society such as young people, the poor and the long-term unemployed despise the election process. In addition, extreme parties that question many fundamental values of our democracies are on the rise. This puts in question the very legitimacy of the elections and raises serious concern about the future of democracy in European societies. The EU-funded REDEM project intends to study the reasons that make European citizens unwilling to participate in the elections as well as investigate the long-term ability of elections to legitimise governance and policies.
