The Crisis of Democracy in the Age of Cities  | August 31 & September 1-2, 2021



City Center is proud to invite you to the Crisis of Democracy in the Age of Cities,
​an international online conference.


The conference will last 3 consecutive days, from August 31st to September 2nd.


The Aim of the conference is to examine the links between the crisis of democracy with its tension between “non-democratic liberalism’ vs “non-liberal democracy’ and, the 21st century as the age of cities, in which the various properties of cities and urbanism dominate life. This, at the background of Industry 4.0, the Anthropocene, globalization and the COVID-19 pandemic.
