The concepts of ‘democracy’ and ‘representation’ are often understood to be closely intertwined. Indeed, the terms are sometimes even used interchangeably. In the past decade, however, various political movements and developments have laid bare a broadly shared dissatisfaction with, and mistrust in, traditional power structures and representative institutions. In the meantime, theoretical debates on representation have taken a so-called ‘constructivist turn’, implying that the logic of representation is intrinsic to the formation of collective power and group identities. The aim of this conference is to relate the ongoing debate on representation with the various challenges to representation in today’s world.
Participation is open to all interested scholars. Registration closes by 21 May. More information about the registration procedure, the conference programme, the conference fee, travelling to Leuven and accommodation can be found on our website:
