Mainz, Germany

This workshop, held in Mainz, Germany, continued the partnership between SSRC’s Anxieties of Democracy program and the Democratic Anxieties project supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The workshop provided a collegial space for early career American and German scholars of democracy to present their research to each other and a set of senior social scientists from both sides of the Atlantic. Topics included minority representation, the success of populism, and the surveillance state.
