Doctoral Project

Doctoral Project

Fundamental Conditions of Democracy: Social Inequality as Disturbing Factor of Democratic Consolidation (working title)

The doctoral project is located within empirical democracy research and regional research in Central Eastern Europe. The project focuses on social conditions and developments during the consolidation of democracies until now and its effects to the stability of democracies in Central Eastern Europe. Considering the illiberal/authoritarian developments in the four Central Eastern European states (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary), the research question is: To what extent does social polarization affect the attitudes of citizens towards democracy and democratic ideals away from an assertive political culture to the instability of liberal democracies in Central Eastern Europe?

The aim of the project is to build an integrative analysis model of different strands of empirical democracy research. Empirically and based on the regional cases of Central Eastern Europe, the project tests the relevance of social conditions for the stability of liberal democracies.
