Course: Why Democracy?

Why democracy? Today, unfortunately, this is no longer a rhetorical question! Worldwide, the democratic idea is under pressure, authoritarian regimes are increasing in number, dictatorial leaders are more firmly in the saddle than ever, and an alarming number of democratic voters vote for openly undemocratic parties without batting an eyelid. So it is high time to reflect, not only on how it has come to this, but also and especially on what exactly democracy means and why it matters? What is the real purpose of a democracy? And why is that commitment not understood or appreciated by so many of our fellow citizens?
