Dr. Dorothea Gädeke, of Goethe-Universität Frankfurt will give a lecture:
"On the Dialectics of Democracy Promotion. A Critical Republican Approach"
Democratization has become a battle cry in contemporary political discourse: Celebrated and promoted for spreading the only legitimate form of government by some, criticized and rejected for serving as the core of a neo-imperial world order by others.
Drawing on republicanism and critical theory, the lecture proposes a theory of domination that transcends this dichotomous view. It links a critique of power with an account of democracy and shows why both the defense and the critique of democracy promotion bear the risk of reverting from a fight against domination into a politics of domination.
Presented by The New School for Social Research (NSSR).
