Rich debates on the crises of democracies are in the center of our project activities financed with the support of the Erasmus+ Jean Monnet programme of the European Union. Year one of our Jean Monnet project CEDoD - Canada Europe Dialogue on Democracy - allowed the Centre for Global Studies at the University of Victoria to house an
event series on issues of “Democracy & its Futures”. It brought together junior and senior scholars from Canada and Europe discussing issues related to democracy and populism from a comparative, transatlantic perspective. The debates of the two-day event were moderated in a way to consider in particular current issues relevant to policy makers and civic society groups.
