Bayerischer Forschungsverbund “Zukunft der Demokratie” (ForDemocracy)

The Bavarian Research Association
Future Of Democracy


At a time when it becomes apparent that democracy and its principles such as equality for all, the rule of law, the separation of powers, the protection of minorities as well as participation are threatened by a loss of attractivity, society faces the challenge of newly negotiating these concepts.

In the context of eleven projects from the humanities and the social sciences at eight Bavarian universities, the Bavarian ForDemocracy Research Association researches this issue: University of Bamberg, HAW Landshut, HAW Munich, LMU Munich, Hochschule für Politik an der TU Munich, University of Passau, OTH Regensburg, and University of Würzburg.

This four-years research project is funded by Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst.
