How the EU can adopt a new type of democracy support

Research output: Working paper


Instead of pretending that consensus on liberal democracy can be enforced in the context of the financial crisis and the Arab spring, the EU should more fully and more consistently push for a real paradigm shift in democracy support; one in which democracy’s meaning is no longer fixed, where democratic debate is embraced rather than feared and where true commitment to the value of democracy rather than its utilitarian effects for other ends is appreciated.
