Post-Crisis Democracy in Europe

Exploring the EU’s struggle for legitimacy  

Post-crisis democracy in Europe blog

The Post-crisis democracy in Europe blog presents insights from the European training network PLATO (The Post-Crisis Legitimacy of the European Union). The project brings together 15 PhD researchers and senior scholars from across Europe and is funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (2017-2020), Grant Agreement No. 722581.

PLATO is coordinated by Prof. Chris Lord at ARENA Centre for European Studies, University of Oslo. In addition to nine university partners who employ the 15 early stage researchers, the project has eleven training partners who contribute to the network with professional expertise and secondment opportunities.

This blog’s main aim is to increase the understanding of questions related to legitimacy and democracy in the European Union in the post-crisis era. We publish posts written by PLATO-affiliated researchers and experts. The views expressed reflect those of the authors, and not those of the PLATO project nor those of the institution with which the author is associated.

If you would like to submit a contribution to the blog as an external author, please contact the editorial team. Your post should be written with a wide audience in mind, and the text must be 800-1,000 words. We will provide further guidelines for authors upon request.
