Research project: Power Deconcentration as an Instrument of Democratic Resilience

The phenomenon of democratic backsliding has become globally widespread in the past decade. The aim of this project is to pursue a novel line of inquiry in the literature on democratic resilience, by conducting a normative analysis focused on the deconcentration of political power at the institutional and individual levels. While mainly positioned within the field of political theory, the project will have an interdisciplinary character, drawing on both historical insights and political science.
