Workshop in London: Ritual and Democracy

The three-day workshop was held in London from September 29 to October 1 2015,  and was organized by the Open University.

Researchers from political science, philosophy and sociology was invited with papers to critically interrogate the conceptions of democracy indirectly implicated in the REDO group’s ritual theories, with suggestions of how we possibly and critically can renegotiate or develop this. Increased attention to right-wing extremism in society increases the importance of the concept of democracy in the overall REDO research portfolio.
