Democracy and Education
19th Forum 2000 Conference
September 13–16, 2015, Prague and other Central European cities
There is a growing sense that democracy has entered a period of discontent and is facing new and serious challenges. Has democracy exhausted itself? Are authoritarian regimes gaining an upper hand? Or, could it be that liberal democracy runs counter to human nature and its preservation requires constant effort? Can education help us meet the challenge of maintaining and expanding democracy?
The discussion was held amongst a number of distinguished guests from around the world.
