Transregional Center for Democratic Studies presents its NSSR-Europe Collective

In the summer of 2016 we hosted members of the NSSR-Europe Collective at our 25th annual Democracy & Diversity Institute in Wroclaw. These TCDS alumni and associates — now based at major academic institutions and policy think-tanks throughout Europe — spoke at the concluding event of the Institute, the conference on The Shrinking of Democracy.
