Doctoral and post-doctoral workshop

To join the meeting, please register here

As the legitimation crisis of democratic systems has increased in the last decades, the interest for sortition has grown exponentially. The citizens' assemblies for the climate in France, England and Scotland are part of a growing wave. After the English-speaking world, French-speaking academics have been the most productive in analysing this phenomenon. This workshop will enable junior French-speaking scholars to discuss their research on political sortition. It thus provides a unique opportunity for international exchanges and debates in history, philosophy and social sciences, with scholars and interested citizens from Oxford and the English-speaking sphere.
