at SOAS on the crisis of participatory governance

On May 18th, I joined friends and colleagues of School of Oriental and African Studies of the University of London, Goldsmiths University and the Next Generation Global Studies at the University of Padova (Italy) for the 'school for all seasons' on Spaces and Times of Globalization. This year the topic is 'Illusions of democracy and the media: Contested visions and political dynamics'. The school, from May 18 to May 22, includes a mix of faculty and student presentations. I contributed to a panel on 'Conceptualizing democracy and its crises'. populated by Massimiliano Tomba, Jan Scholte and Nathalie Fenton, and presented seven reasons why I believe multistakeholder governance is in a crisis.
