The scientific goal of the JMC is to examine the functioning of representative democracy in crisis mode. More specifically, the Chair studies the impact of the sovereign debt crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic on representative democracy in Europe. All the activities of the JMC are organised in three work-packages:

 

  • WP-1 TEACHING

 

This WP concerns teaching that will be delivered by the Chairholder and the team

 

  • WP-2 EUROPE NOW! 

 

This WP concerns outreach and, more specifically, the regular series of public events targeting the general public, practitioners, NGOs, university and high school students.

 

  • WP-3 RESEARCH ACTIVITY

 

This WP concerns academic research and workshops bringing together interdisciplinary and international scholarship working on the impact of crises on representative democracy. 

The Jean Monnet Chair is embedded in the discipline of political science. The team is composed of political scientists affiliated to the Willy Brandt Centre for German and European Studies as well as the Department of Social Sciences at the University of Wroclaw.
