„The Centre of Southeast European Studies at the University of Graz, together with the Consortium of European Symposia on Turkey [CEST], is delighted to invite paper submissions for a Symposium from October 1-3, 2015 at the University of Graz.
The Symposium on „Populism, majoritarianism and crises of liberal democracy“ seeks to identify and discuss, in comparative perspective, the root causes, dynamics, effects and modes of „illiberal governance“. We use the term „illiberal governance“ in a heuristic fashion rather than as a normative claim. Such modes of governance are increasingly identifiable not only among those regimes classified as hybrid or authoritarian but also among established liberal democracies.“
