    Criticisms of democracy, authoritarianism and populism in Europe

    Continuities and disruptions from the inter-war period until today

    Facing the feeling of »crisis« of democracy arising in recent years and symbolized by the rise of populist movements, there is a recurrent comparison with the inter-war situation in today’s political debate in many European countries. Is this comparison relevant to understand the specific democratic practices during both periods? Building on this question, the workshop serves as kick-off for the research program Which democracy/democracies? Reflections on the crisis, modernization and limits of democracy in Germany, France, England and Central Europe between 1919 and 1939 supported by the Centre interdisciplinaire d’études et de recherches sur l’Allemagne (CIERA).

    Soixante-huit : quarante ans après

    1968, année sur laquelle les opinions divergent encore aujourd’hui. Pour les uns, 1968 égale renouveau, révolte, émancipation, pour les autres il est synonyme de flirt avec le communisme, de déclin des valeurs et de berceau de la terreur exercée par la Fraction armée rouge. Quelles étaient les aspirations de la génération 68 ? Qu’a-t-elle obtenu ? Qu’en est-il resté ? Quarante ans après, l’historien Wolfgang Kraushaar (auteur de Achtundsechzig. Eine Bilanz, à paraître au Propyläen Verlag Berlin), l’un des meilleurs connaisseurs du mouvement de mai 68, et Hajo Funke, politologue à l’université libre de Berlin, discuteront avec Alfred Grosser pour tirer un bilan critique de cette période.
