Colin Crouch
Democracy in a Dangerous and Troubled World
Opening lecture


While right-wing populism is certainly one expression of democratic discontent, disproportionate media focus risks reinforcing these parties as serious contenders and adversaries of the status quo as we saw in terms of Brexit and the US election. Colin Crouch, external member of the MPIfG, talked about "Democracy in a Dangerous and Troubled World" at the MPIfG Annual Colloquium.

Colin Crouch is an English sociologist and political scientist. He has coined the post-democracy concept in 2000 in his book Coping with Post-Democracy. Colin Crouch is currently Emeritus Professor at the University of Warwick and an external member at the MPIfG.
