Objectives

RC34 - Quality of Democracy wants to cast new light on the empirical analysis of quality of democracy and wants to provide scholars with a new “space” in which they can meet and share methodological and empirical works aiming to deep our understanding of the mechanisms that lead democratic processes, such as changes, subversions, anchoring, etc.
